Loralyn Mears, PhD

I’m a “messager.”

What that really means is that I’m an author of two books, including a 2018 Gold Medal Award winning book (One Sip at a Time: a Memoir) and my new book, a hard-science thriller, “COVID-19 The Battle for Humanity.” I’m also the founder of an #edTech startup with an active marketing and scientific writing consultancy practice. Most notably, I’ve been named to the Top 1% of UpWork freelancers which now total nearly 13 million.

I’m a “translator” in content marketing, speaking science, technology and business producing whitepapers, journal articles, brand positioning and go-to-market strategies that lead to commercial success. I translate complex scientific and technical concepts into content that can be broadly understood by a lay audience or expertly written for the professionals and regulatory compliance officers in the field. You can also call me a dot-connector: I can stitch together concepts to create compelling stories and content.

I’ve spent my career on the commercial side (marketing & sales) working for Fortune 100s and numerous startups.

I support Bio-IT, Saas, Tech, LifeSci, HealthSci and companies big and small with effective B2B & B2C marketing strategies and content that generates leads – and revenues. I’ve launched a dozen products, I’ve ghost-written countless blogs and I’m a columnist for Grit Daily News.
