Carol retired from nursing in 2010, after working in various areas of nursing management. Since retiring, she found her new niche in freelance writing and enjoys spending most days learning new interest topics for her clients.

A nursing career gave her the expertise and experience needed to enter the freelance writing field on many other health and wellness issues. She began as a two-star author and is now rated as a four-star freelance writer. She is an editor on one writing site.

She has written over 3,000 paid and published articles equaling over two million words on many different subjects, including everything medical, diet orientated, fitness, wellness, the obesity crisis in America, and lifestyle changes.

This writer lends her expertise and knowledge to four writing sites working as an editor on one of these sites. Carol is a researcher and frequently steps out of the medical arena into topics of interest to her clients, such as a wide variety of law topics, car repairs, heating, and A/C, real estate, plumbing, electrical systems, all forms of insurance, roofing, sewer lines and plumbing, and more.

Carol is a published author for a biography of a family member and an honored WWII veteran. She also wrote a family cookbook and her latest book in process, "A Crazy Cat Lady." These last two books are works in progress.

Carol believes that you are never too old to learn new things, and that life itself is a learning process. She found that freelance writing takes her onto many different and exciting paths.

Specialties

The years' Carol spent in various nursing fields allow her to gather a wealth of information and experience in those areas. The medical field is her expertise because of spending over 40 years in that field. She opens her mind to many other fields of interest to each client.

You must love the career you chose, and hopefully, you love it enough to make it a lifetime of learning. Carol loved her nursing job and serving her many patients throughout the last 40-years.

She enjoys researching what practices have the most significant impact on the human body. For instance, is it traditional/conventional medicine or one of the many holistic care varieties available to everyone today that benefits the body best?

Traditional medicine has come a long way over the centuries, and no one can argue that conventional medicine saves lives. However, so does the more natural route to health and wellness without all the side effects of synthetic medications.

Natural treatments and herb therapies once were thought pure quackery. Traditional doctors are now embracing natural medicine, and these two industries are working together to benefit the patient.

Holistic care triggered a new interest in health and wellness for Carol. It demanded she takes a more in-depth look at physical fitness, vitamins, minerals, fad diets, nutrition, fast foods, obesity in America, smoking, alcohol, herbs, and the over 200 alternative therapies that do not have the nasty side effects that conventional medicine and treatments frequently display.

She found that the natural route to healing took care of underlying illnesses, while traditional medicine relieved the disease's symptoms.

Interests

Carol has another passion for learning and researching other topics of interest to various clients outside of the medical field.

In addition to medicine, Carol and her husband enjoy traveling. Although she has done all her traveling across America, it does not stop her from researching far-away destinations abroad.

Carol has two grandchildren. She enjoys spending time with her children and grandkids and experiencing new adventures.

She loves to garden, harvest vegetables, herbs and enjoys the dehydration process used on many food types. Carol enjoys cooking and baking and tries to use some of this time teaching her grandkids about the kitchen. In many instances, the children end up teaching her. Never think that you are too old to learn new and exciting things.

She enjoys writing about various topics of interest for her clients. If there is such a thing, downtime can include cross-stitch, needlework, garage sales, and bargain shopping.
