Evergreen Writer


Mental Health and Chronic Illness

From my experiences personally and professionally with the healthcare system, I understand the importance of accessible, accurate health information and the ability to be your own advocate. I am passionate about advocating for awareness and a better understanding of mental health and chronic conditions. 

— Kimberly Charleson


Kimberly changed courses in college, leaving a journalism degree to pursue legal studies. During those years, she was still interested in health and wellness and making a difference. She brought the first Love Your Melon campus program to Western New York and raised awareness and money for childhood cancer. Throughout school, she worked in healthcare in long-term care settings and mental health clinics in case management roles. Finally, she made the switch to freelance writing and in her writing career thus far, she has worked with health and wellness companies including Myostorm, Mooditude, and Eversound.


 Kimberly has a dual Bachelor's degree in Legal Studies and Sociology.
