I have more than 25 years' professional experience in media, not-for-profit, and corporate environments.  In addition to writing for The Globe and Mail, The London Free Press and various magazines, I was also part of the team that started The Discovery Channel in Canada. 

With a PhD in medical history and international research experience, I run MF Strategic Communications, a consulting firm that specializes in communications for the university, research and medical sectors. 

I also write plays, novels and short stories. 

When I am not writing or meeting clients, I strap on skates and pads to play goal in a women's ice hockey league.
