Theresa has always had a gift for making health education fun and interesting. As a writer and illustrator, she manages to find a fresh spin on even the most mundane topics. Her expertise as a clinician and health educator shines through in her ability to connect with a broad audience and convey technical concepts in easy-to-understand terms.
She is also the consummate professional; in the eight years I worked with her at dLife, Theresa never missed a deadline and always provided thoughtful, actionable feedback in her role as a medical advisory board member. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a smart, forward-thinking healthcare communicator.

Diabetes concepts can be complex. It takes a special talent to get the concept and create the desired communication for your audience in a friendly, positive tone. This applies to people with diabetes, their families, and diabetes care providers.
*Who are the learners or targeted recipients?
*What are the main points?
*What outcome or experience do you hope to achieve?

No need to worry about reaching a low literacy audience as Theresa has much experience in this domain.
For audiovisual products, you will find the content delivered in a polished and professional manner.
