My name is Erica Hersh and I’m a health writer, editor, and communications strategist. I’ve worked as an editor in legal publishing, a marketing and communications associate at a health care analytics company, a content manager in a hospital communications department, and as a freelance writer for both online and print publications.

I’m a New Jersey native and received a B.A. in English and Philosophy of Biology from Vassar College and an M.S. in Health Communication from Tufts University. I currently live in Boston, MA with my husband and when I’m not working, you can find me solving crossword puzzles, exploring new restaurants, and catching up on pop culture.

In 2014, I fulfilled my lifelong dream of being on Jeopardy. I did not, however, fulfill my dream of winning on Jeopardy.
