    Renee Eli PhD

    Expert Editor, Researcher, Academic & Medical Writer

    United States - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

    An expert editor, my work is touted by clients as "exceptional," "creative," "visionary," "impeccable," "professional," "clear," "resourceful," and "highly recommended." I provide developmental, copy- and line-editing for projects from the sublimely creative to the scientifically specific. As an academic writer, I am particularly well-versed in medical writing. My education and professional backgrounds range from medicine and medical humanities, medical sociology and anthropology of the body, to biology and ecology, contemporary philosophy, and the history of cultural beliefs. In addition, I have nearly three decades of experience as a healthcare provider and educator. I work with clients in a uniquely personal albeit professional and collaborative manner to evoke the clearest, most authentic expression that best articulates intention, whether of academic writing, a good story, or a finely choreographed expression of both. To wit, I am a fastidious editor. My approach is methodical and detail-oriented with a view of the whole. I am attentive to the piece of writing as a clearly articulated narrative progression, and to the details of word-choice, grammar, punctuation, and format. My work is founded upon a value for excellence in service, which means delivering exemplary work in a timely and professional manner. It is my view that good writing is well-researched, thoughtful, and thought-provoking. It has the capacity to change minds and transform lives, because the writing—well tuned—is experienced by the reader as an integrated whole. It both captures the mind and transcends it as a deeply personal experience of the heart. Writer is changed. Reader is changed. I am most at home with projects that push the boundaries of existing paradigms—or endeavors that envision new cultural patterns, espouse an integrative view, and open important questions. Not only am I practiced at engaging such aims creatively and as a writer, I am passionate about doing so.
