Encontrei no jornalismo a melhor maneira de contar boas histórias. Já são mais de 15 anos entre redações, agências e eventos.

Atuei como repórter de publicações como Bons Fluídos, Viva Saúde, Vogue Joias, L'Officiel, Make e Orgânicos em Revista. E ainda como editora-chefe de Dieta Já!, Vida Natural, UMA e Ouse. Fundei duas agências de comunicação, onde atuei como estrategista em comunicação para clientes dos segmentos de saúde e bem-estar, sustentabilidade, gestão de pessoas e negócios. O ciclismo urbano como estilo de vida ainda me levou a colaborar com o site Vá de Bike, onde escrevo sobre mobilidade urbana e iniciativas que transformam o mundo através da bicicleta.

Lindsey Gainer

Writer / Editor

I first fell in love with writing and editing in college, where I served as the editor-in-chief of my school’s newspaper before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications & Journalism. Since then I have had the privilege of working in a variety of environments and with all different types of clients, from health organizations, nonprofits, and agencies to startups, small businesses, universities, and corporations. I have a special interest in health and medical writing, and have completed anatomy & physiology, medical terminology, and biology courses toward that end. No matter the project, I appreciate that this type of work affords me a glimpse into different worlds that I may have never been exposed to otherwise - learning and researching energizes me! I love taking what I’ve learned and turning it into useful information for a reader that will have a positive impact on their life. Interested in working together?

Esta es una pequeña selección de las cosas que he hecho en los últimos años. Abunda la temática sanitaria, pero también hay ejemplos de otras áreas en las que he tenido la oportunidad de trabajar.
