This writer, chronic crafter, wife, and mom to one mini rascal, has over 15 years of healthcare marketing and copywriting experience. Recent employers include Aetna Pharmacy Management and CVS Health. Cortney has logged many hours writing for kids and also focuses her energies on writing about pharmaceutical topics: the value of generic drugs, why it’s important to use medicine exactly how the doctor prescribes, and many other topics. The result for her was an increased interest in preventive health. She feels that prescription medicines are an advantage of modern life for those who truly need them. However, nutritious foods are an important first step to achieving good health. She brings to Feeding My Kid a curiosity about food. What makes some foods healthier than others? How should we prepare a food to enjoy more health benefits? How can we make healthy foods more appealing to kiddos? When not pondering these questions, Cortney enjoys spending time with her family. She resides in Chicago and maintains a windy city-focused Etsy shop called CitySentiments.
