    Professional Web Content, Article, SEO Writer, Health, Tech, Finance

    United Arab Emirates - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 5

    I am nurse-midwife who is passionate about writing. I don't consider myself as a nurse-turned-writer as some would like to think, because I have been a writer longer than I have been a health professional. My writing experience dates back in secondary school, when I became a member of our school publication and soon became promoted as one of the editors. I never stopped writing while in college and even after I graduated. I immediately worked as a full-time online freelancer while being a nurse at the same time. I am a versatile person who can work on just about anything thrown at me, but I can say I am mostly experienced in writing about health/medical and finance. As a healthcare professional, I am a natural when it comes to medical writing. Meanwhile, I've also written content for about a hundred sites related to finance. I am also a SEO specialist, and if you want someone who can insert keywords brilliantly, making your content sound natural, then I am your writer!
