About Me

About Me

I'm Lauren, a freelance journalist and copywriter focused on health and wellness, alternative medicine, fitness, farming, and the outdoors. My writing has been published in Outside, Digital Trends, and Acres USA, to name a few.

I'm passionate about trail and ultra running, nature-based living, and plant medicine.

Outside of writing, I can be found growing plants, running and hiking with my dogs, foraging, and wildcrafting.

I live on a small farm surrounded by an enchanted forest in Downeast, Maine with my husband, our dogs, and a turtle named Bowser.

Work Experience

Work Experience

2017 - Present

I've been working as a medical writer for healthcare providers, businesses, and organizations. Projects include researched articles, blog posts, and website content. I have a special interest in integrative modalities, alternative approaches to treating mental illnesses, and psychedelic medicine.

2014 - 2017

Prior to freelancing, I worked as a staff reporter for Mount Shasta Area Newspapers. During my time there, I honed my skills in research, interviewing, and writing accurately on tight deadlines.

2010 - 2013

Much to the chagrin of my family, I left my job in neuroscience research at Princeton University to teach English in South America. Upon returning, I moved to the northwest to complete an apprenticeship on an organic vegetable farm in Washington.



2008 - 2009

Princeton University

Non-degree graduate coursework in global public health at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs


The College of New Jersey

Graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology with a concentration in biopsychology. 

During my time at TCNJ, I spent three semesters working in my advisor's EEG research lab, which prepared me for my job as the research coordinator at Princeton Neuroscience Institute.
