  • Jennifer feels very strongly about evidence-based medicine and wants to put an end to the spread of medical misinformation.
  • As a doctor, she learned how to translate complex medical terminologies into simple and easily understandable concepts.
  • She believes that AI can have a supporting role in the healthcare industry but by no means can it replace the essence of humanity.


Jennifer has always been passionate about writing, but she was never able to fully explore her interest until recently. She has been working as a freelance medical writer for over two years now. By day, she works at a clinic with practicing physicians and assists them in seeing patients. By night, she trades her stethoscope for her keyboard and writes for health and wellness websites such as Health Digest. She continues to expand her knowledge by staying up-to-date on current health issues and trends in healthcare.


Jennifer has a Bachelor's degree in Biology, and is a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.). She received both degrees from the University of Santo Tomas, one of the top-ranking schools in the Philippines. She is currently working on becoming a fully licensed physician in the United States.
