Dr. marie gabrielle B.

Dr. marie gabrielle B. Agency Contractor

Experienced Medical/Pharma Writer (Content Writing/ Copywriting/SEO)

Philippines - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 11

Hi! I'm Dr. Gabs Laguna, a medical doctor specialized in Internal Medicine (Adult Medicine). I started writing commercially for magazines at the age of 18 and progressed to website content writing in 2004 while I was in medical school. I used to be an Elance contractor in 2006, then I moved to Odesk/Upwork in 2008. I am now writing both for print (I am the editorial consultant of Medical Observer Philippines) and online. My skills are: content writing (10+ years of experience), SEO, copywriting, proofreading, Adobe pagemaker/Indesign (desktop publishing), pharmaceutical writing/clinical trial protocol writing/drafting and marketing advisory. I have worked in a number of projects involving drug/pharmaceutical databases. I am a physician specialized in Internal Medicine and a pharmaceutical entrepreneur by profession but I always had a unique way with words since I was a child. As the college editor-in-chief of the university paper, I won two gold medals for editorial writing (regional), one silver for feature writing and one bronze medal (also both regional) in a national essay writing contest. I was also the Most Promising Feature Writer and the Most Promising Editorial Writer in 2007, as awarded by the Philippine Information Agency Region IV. I am a BS Medical Technology/Clinical Laboratory Science graduate (licensed) before I went to medical school. Many people think that literary prowess and a scientific mind cannot be combined but I have proven them wrong. Feature writing is my hobby while science is my profession. In 2010, while straight from residency, I was hired as a researcher doing clinical trials for a multinational pharma company. It was during those times when I took up my Masters in Pharmacology at the University of the Philippines Manila in order for me to become a pharmacologist/pharmaceutical IT professional. As a pharmaceutical entrepreneur, I am proud to say that I have my own share of modest successes. From a small drugstore with only one worker I managed to grow into a pharmaceutical distributor employing various health professionals within four years. If you need my advice in pharmaceutical business strategy and marketing, feel free to send me a message. I also manage a small of team of writers, so if you need some bulk writing, consider my highly efficient team. I am currently in the process of forming a web development team so if you are a web/software developer, DBA, designer or content writer from Iloilo, please feel free to contact me as follows: Email: Skype: marie.gabrielle.laguna (just indicate that you want to be a part of my team) Thank you!
