Meet Karen

health writer karen m riderI’m a Florida Gulf Coast based writer with a passion for health writing. For over 10 years, I’ve written media-savvy, audience-centric content for B2B and B2C publications and organizations. Topics I’ve written about include general health and wellness, integrative and natural medicine, vitamin supplements, herbs, parenting and family wellness, psychology, education, creativity, holistic therapies, and much more. I’ve also interviewed visionaries like Andrew Weil, Mark Hyman, Dean Ornish, and the late Wayne Dyer.

Recent health writing projects that I’m super excited about include: Senior Content Writer at Medicine Talk Pro newsletter service, which is distributed to thousands of holistic health practitioners and their patients; blog writing for a child development center specializing in autism and learning disorders; and developmental editing for The Blood Type Cookbook: Easy, Healthy and Delicious Recipes for the Whole Family. Peruse my portfolio to see more published articles and content writing projects.
