The journey to Clem.Co LLC began with a creative writing award in the third grade. Many years later, in 2007, I earned my first paycheck as a professional writer from The New York Times Company, which owned About.com at that time. I wrote and edited About.com’s Healthcare Careers site from 2007-2018, which was a perfect fit for my decade of experience in medical sales, sales training, consulting, and healthcare recruiting. (During my tenure, About.com became Verywell.com and TheBalance.com, where some of my content is still hosted today.)
My experience writing search-optimized content for the web led to a shift in my full-time healthcare career in 2009, when I became Director of Communications & Media Relations for The Medicus Firm. I managed media, PR and communications for TMF, a national physician recruiting firm, where I’d worked in other roles since joining the two co-founders in 2007 as their first employee. I helped grow the company from a <$1M start-up, through a 2009 merger and a 2016 acquisition by a $1+ billion global healthcare corporation. Our new parent company then tapped me to provide media and PR for several sister companies, in addition to TMF. I managed media relations, communications, and wrote industry articles for multiple healthcare companies simultaneously, earning hundreds of media placements and mentions throughout my tenure, including citations in The New York Times, CNN, USAToday, MSNBC, Fox News, HealthLeaders Media, Medical Economics, Modern Healthcare, Becker’s Hospital Review and many more.
In January of 2019 I joined another national physician staffing firm as VP of Marketing where I launched their new website, grew traffic, established a social media presence, attended conferences and assisted with trade show materials. I also created sales collateral and presentation slide decks, wrote articles for the website and advertorials, and obtained several media mentions and PR placements.
In 2020 I launched ClemCo, LLC where I’ve contracted with a number of healthcare companies including a medical media firm, a physician consulting firm, and a national clinical research company. Additionally, I am a contributing freelance writer for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
I look forward to learning more about your business media needs, and sharing more of my recent work and projects to see if there is an opportunity to work together.
