ABOUT

I’m Alex, a Minneapolis-based freelance writer with more than nine years of professional writing experience. In my five years of freelancing, I’ve written about health and wellness, self-care, business, and more.

WHY HEALTH & WELLNESS?

Though I’ve researched and written about many different topics over the years, wellness is my niche — especially food and nutrition, mind-body practices, and self-care. My passion for health and nutrition began several years ago, following a personal diagnosis with ovarian cancer, Hashimoto’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and several other mystery ailments.

About a year before I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, my mother was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. Immediately following her diagnosis, she and I teamed up to learn as much as possible about health and nutrition. My mom continues to be my greatest inspiration, and I simply don’t know anyone who works so tirelessly for good health!
