Writing Services

I help companies give credible, quality content to their audiences, without having to waste a bunch of time.


Blog Vitamins – Supplement your content

High-quality blog posts can be time consuming and difficult to write and research. Just like taking a vitamin to boost your physical nutrition, you can supplement your blog content with extra posts each month. Showcase author credibility with a byline (example: “by Shelly Najjar, MPH, RDN”) and/or short bio (exact wording depends on blog topic).

Blog Trainer – Break through those barriers

Sometimes you just get stuck. If you want to have someone guide you through those challenges and get your blog back on track, you can consult with me to help clarify your blog’s purpose and topics, and create a plan for future posts.

Writing experience

Since I was little, I’ve loved writing.  I’ve had the opportunity to write for many purposes, including academic work at the college and graduate levels, public health research reports, blogs, health and wellness reporting, and fiction and poetry.  I have experience working with editors, conducting on-the-street and expert interviews (in-person and via phone and email), and can quickly research scientific topics and translate them for the consumer.

Qualified in the areas of wellness, nutrition, travel, and goal achievement

In addition to being an avid bucket lister, I’ve also worked as a productivity coach and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.

I have a Master of Public Health in Public Health Nutrition from the University of Washington, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition from Washington State University. At WSU, I was also in the Honors College, which focused on writing and communication of all subjects.

Part of my education included over 1200 hours of supervised training in nutrition and experience communicating health information to a variety of people. After graduation, I took a job as a hospital dietitian and used my training and experience to walk with people through lasting behavior change.

Today, I work as writer and community builder, helping people to move forward toward their goals by connecting them to the information and people they need.
