Elizabeth Binsfield BA RN

I've been a registered nurse for twenty years. I've also been writing in some fashion since I was a child. Today I combine both of my passions writing about health and wellness for the industry and the consumer.

Nurses are trained to educate and advocate for our patients. Thanks to my training and experience, I'm particularly adept at digesting complex information into easily accessible language for any audience. My voice is affable and approachable, yet professional.
