Lori L. Alexander, MTPW, ELS, MWC™

President and Principal Writer and Editor

Lori honed her writing and editing skills at several prestigious organizations, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, and Lahey Clinic, before establishing Editorial Rx, Inc. Now she focuses on projects of the most importance to her: patient education, continuing medical education, and the profession of medical communication. She is the 2016-2107 President of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) and served 10 years as the Editor of the AMWA Journal.

Lori grew up just outside of Boston, went to undergraduate school in Maine and New Hampshire, and earned a graduate degree in Boston. She misses those crisp, colorful fall days in New England but so enjoys the year-round summer days in Florida. Her passions include travel, Broadway theater, penguins, cats, and seasonal decorating. Her creative side flourishes with writing comedy, playing the piano, and coloring.  And she is quite proud of her first-place ribbon from her local spelling bee.

Teamwork

Teamwork

Lori and Deb work independently with different clients, but every once in a while, they pool their skills and knowledge to provide comprehensive services. For example, Lori has edited manuscripts in publications Deb is developing, and both Lori and Deb came to the rescue of a client who needed to outsource managing editing services for several months. The team regularly engages with graphic designers, editorial assistants, proofreaders, print managers, and other writers and editors to meet the needs of individual projects. The Editorial Rx, Inc., team in Florida also includes Grayson and Ellie, who lend support whenever they can.
