Hi! Thanks for visiting. When I first started out as a writer nearly 16 years ago, I used it as an excuse to live and travel around the country so that I could take whatever job I needed to get experience. Case in point, my first job was as a newspaper reporter for a small, family-owned weekly paper near the Everglades. What a great do-it-yourself experience for a new writer - not only did I write the stories, I shot and processed all of the photographs, designed the paper and even sold the advertising at first. From there I moved out to Silicon Valley and did technical, financial and marketing writing, plus a little freelance work for the San Jose Mercury News. I also lived in Nashville, Tennessee for almost eight years, working primarily in the healthcare industry as a writer and analyst. Today I'm back in my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, working professionally as a SEO writer, freelance editor and ghostwriter.

Blog: It's the end of the line for meaningful use, what's next?

On January 13, 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that the Meaningful Use (MU) program would come to an end in 2016. The news surprised many, as CMS had just released the final rules to meet MU Stage 3 requirements in October 2015.
