Hi, I’m Sophie. I’m an experienced health writer with a medical background.
I began my career as a Registered Dietitian in the UK. I loved collaborating with and training other healthcare practitioners, and educating patient groups. However, working in a clinical setting wasn’t a great fit for me. So, I used my BSc (Hons) degree to transition into research analysis and content creation for the largest online nutrition education company, The Health Sciences Academy®, alongside editing scientific manuscripts.
Upon emigrating to Canada, I started my own nutritional consultancy business, which evolved into an online education company, On Your Plate Inc. Here, I launched a 4 week course that teaches people how to manage digestive symptoms. Following this, I branched out into pharmaceutical advertising, starting on a freelance contract at Klick Health. I have been working on freelance health writing projects ever since!
A little more about me
I live an extremely varied, interesting, and fulfilling life.
“Sophie has a wonderful character. She is prepared, presents with clinical knowledge and familiarity within the health field. She is approachable and develops patient rapport with ease. I have enjoyed working with her on numerous projects, from promotional and educational videos, to developing branded marketing posts for social media. She has impressive, original ideas and is always a pleasure to work with.”
“Sophie impressed me from the start – her thirst for research, learning, and gaining more knowledge about whatever she was tackling is always admirable. I stand behind her abilities and diligence to get a job done well, right, and thoroughly! I have personally recommended her services on many occasions to my patients, through my professional YouTube channel, social media channels, and email marketing list.”
“Working alongside Sophie was one of my most enjoyable AD/copywriter partnerships. Her passion and enthusiasm for the health industry and thirst for knowledge was clearly visible in all of our interactions. Sophie presents with many creative, original ideas and is able to communicate them effectively to any audience. She receives direction well, presents with a strong medical background, and would be an asset to any Creatives team.”
“Sophie has consistently demonstrated excellent communication skills – from strong academic writing, to engaging and evidence-based blog articles. She is able to take on numerous projects at one time and thrives in a varied, stimulating, and collaborative working environment. I have also been impressed by Sophie’s clinical knowledge that she has acquired from her primary care experience and ongoing research analysis within the health industry.”
“I came across Sophie’s website, On Your Plate Inc., and immediately signed up for her online IBS course. Sophie is doing a great job to ensure that the public has access to a comprehensive, evidence-based source of information about IBS, strategies to improve their quality of life, and access to a qualified practitioner. Sophie takes a fresh approach to meeting the needs of this ever-growing population. It was a pleasure to take the course and work with her.”
