Hello and welcome!

I am a pharmacist with a master degree in journalism and a master of public health. I wrote my dissertation on the role of pet dogs on pre-schoolers' physical activity.  My other passions include women’s health and mental health, with a particular focus on the role of pharmaceuticals. 

My freelance journalism work spans many diverse fields and topics. I also enjoy writing personal essays and would love to branch into fiction one day.

Please have a read of my published works.

I can be contacted on melissa.coci@gmail.com for any comments, enquiries or hellos!
