Ellen Thomas – Business
thomas@zherald.com
Veterinarian & freelance writer, with a special interest in making science/medicine accessible to the public. Nine years of experience in companion animal veterinary practice has equipped me with both medical knowledge and communication skills. I would love to utilize these skills to create content for your website, book, magazine, or other publication. I am a definite ‘science nerd’ (with far-ranging interests outside of veterinary medicine!) and have a passion for educating others (demonstrated through 4+ years of experience as a test-prep instructor prior to beginning my veterinary career).

Versatile, sales-oriented North American English copywriter with a proven track record in financial services, investing/financial planning and health & wellness copy at great rates. ABOUT ME When I began in financial services more than 20 years ago, my objective was to help people. Help them buy their first home, help them buy Christmas gifts for their children; help them achieve their dream retirement. As an experienced writer, I understand what motivates your clients to reach for their goals and why they look to you for advice. Invite me to bid on your project and I’ll tell you what that is.
