Valerie K. Clark

Editor for Medical Publications


I earned a bachelor of science degree in Zoology with a minor concentration in Environmental Geology from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio (2008). Best time of my life! (Go Buckeyes!) During my college career, I spent many hours working with plankton, lake water, sediment, and penguins. I published my penguin research in E: The Environmental Magazine in 2012.

After college, I worked as a regulatory writer for about 2 years. It was a priceless introduction to the medical writing, which never crossed my mind as a career path but was a perfect fit for me. I began freelancing in 2010 with a gig to write 60 webpages about roofing and construction for an internet developer (not exactly my area of expertise, but it was a start!). I learned all about search engine optimization (SEO), which led to years of writing medical website content, blogs, and social media posts. I’ve worked with hundreds of doctors in many different specialties. In 2015, I started working as a managing editor for a medical journal at the Cleveland Clinic. Since then, I have launched four new medical journals and manage the entire publishing process.

I’m a member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association, Freelancers Union, and National Professional Women’s Association.

When I’m not working, I enjoy watching my kids wrestle and play football, doing home improvement projects with my husband, family movie nights, day trips to the beach (Lake Erie), and yoga!
