Client Testimonials

Success Stories

"I like how simple this approach is. No overly complicated phrasing to hook a client and no long convoluted messages to explain what exactly you do. Great advice!"


This program helped me to know what freelance writing is, and the actual steps on how to start. Instead of a vague idea of wanting to be a freelance writer, I now have concrete steps I have started.  This gave an extensive overview of what to expect as a nurse writer, and how to prepare myself to start out as a freelancer.


Very easy to read guide, providing lots of valuable insights into the industry.

-Jennifer Sols, RN

If you're looking for a friendly, nurturing, authentic and wise coach, Janelle is the one for you.

Meeting her 1-on-1 completely changed the trajectory of my Health writing business. She exposed me on how to approach clients the "right" way with utmost guidance every single step. Her passion of helping other writers succeed sets her apart from every coach that I've known. From "ick" to "awesome" , her Introduction to Health Writing course opened a plethora of options I never knew of being in the Medical field myself! I can't thank her enough for all that she's done for me.

And if you're stuck in a rabbit hole or looking to start with Health/Medical writing, I'd highly recommend Janelle.

Is this a scam?

Nope, no scam. Start googling Healthline, Healthgrades, and Medical News Today. Look at their top articles. How many of them are written by nurses, doctors, or pharmacists? I’m willing to be a lot are, or they’re medically fact checked or edited by those professionals.

How is the Academy structured?

The course is structured with lesson plans, actionable homework and webinars. There are three workshops and over 30 templates for you to use. 

How am I supposed to get published for the first time?

This course comes with a free guest blogging spot on my blog. This is different from the paid portfolio package. The portfolio package is for people who need help editing and building the article. 

For the guest blogging spot included free in the course, all articles will be sent in their final form and published to my blog. 

What's included?

In 220 pages and over 30 templates, this course is designed to hold your hand for the first year of freelance health writing. The templates alone are gold. You get a style guide, invoice, a few different letters of introductions, payment trackers, lead trackers, and more! 

You'll get access to three workshops: LinkedIn and Personal Branding, What's My Niche Workshop, and Goal Setting for Business Owners. Plus over 14 webinars on specific deliverables. 


It comes with an interactive, exclusive LinkedIn community. You can get your question answered, chat with your peers, and get access to leads sent directly to the group. It’s the best way for you to get support while you make your transition.

What happens if there are changes to freelancing practice?

This course is a living, breathing course that you will have access to forever. What does that mean? If I notice something my course is lacking, I’m going to add it. And because your membership never expires, you’ll get access to that additional information. You can expect this course to age like fine wine!

  1. blogs

  2. white papers

  3. newsletters & emails

  4. slide decks

  5. CMEs
