    If you are looking for someone with a diverse knowledge of the sciences, but also happens to have great writing skills--then we will get along great! I have a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences as well as an MS in Toxicology, which grew from an agricultural background in the animal sciences. I have studied many areas of the biomedical and environmental health sciences, including pulmonary, cardiovascular and heavy metal toxicology. My writing experience has evolved from those areas, but has also grown to include writing for educational science projects. I have a significant amount of experience in grant and manuscript preparations as well as science curriculum development at the middle and high school levels. I love writing about science topics in a way that makes it come alive for audiences of all skill levels and ages.
