Welcome to my site

I’m Johanna, a Vancouver-based writer and editor looking for challenging projects, particularly in the health care and academic fields. My current focus is large-scale grant applications and strategic plans.

I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the top scientists and researchers in the country, as well as marketing and communications professionals and business leaders. Recent clients and contracts include the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Calgary. College of Registered Nurses of BC, the PROOF Centre of Excellence. My colleague Dr. Chrystal Palaty and I researched and wrote the 2012-2017 Strategic Plan for the CIHR Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction.

I also spent three years as an editor in the Tokyo Bureau of Kyodo News, Japan’s national News Agency — I remain committed to keeping on top of international news and events, and their impact on research, politics, and day-to-day life in Canada.

Welcome to my site — have a look around, and let me know what you think.

I look forward to hearing from you.
