Meet Frieda


Frieda Wiley, PharmD, BCGP, RPh

I’m a freelance medical and science writer who solves communications problems for my clients one word at a time. I also happen to be a licensed pharmacist and former chemist with the whole alphabet soup thing behind my name. But don’t let that mislead you.

Having won my first writing award in the first grade, I consider myself a writer first and a scientist second. Although I initially began my career as a chemist who analyzed solutions used to overhaul and repair turbine jet engines, I sought out opportunities to write whenever they presented. After I published my first magazine article and developed some marketing materials while still in pharmacy school, my ideal path became clear: I wanted to write.

Today, I draw from my diverse professional experiences to produce content in plain language as well as in complex jargon for scientific and medical professionals.

My current and past client history includes:
