Fiona Beck is an alumnus of the University of Queensland, Australia, where she gained a bachelor’s degree in occupational therapy. After honing her clinical skills in Australia and the UK, she stepped into writing for health communications and research.

When explaining medical matters in everyday language she writes with empathy, as if the reader is her own patient. When writing on behalf of clinicians, she is honored to help them effectively communicate their research.

Fiona has lived in several countries and discovered herself to be a keen linguist. Observing how medical English is used between native and non-native speakers, professionals and laypeople, has been a fascinating and unexpected dimension that inspires her work.
