To support myself as a grad student at UCSD and neuro postdoc at Salk Institute, I freelanced as a medical editor, starting 25 years ago. Then worked FT in communications and as a grant writer at City of Hope (COH) Cancer Center in LA. Now in Nashville, I still freelance as a grant writer and sci communicator for COH and institutions worldwide. Also have a BA in English. But that's another story.
