Who is Hallenburg Communications?

Content areas

I’ve worked with content in many areas, but the unifying theme of my work is the sciences: natural sciences such as wildlife and entomology, environmental education and sustainability, small-scale agriculture, horticulture, animal rights/welfare and behavior — and I'm also experienced in areas such as analytical chemistry (chromatography), pharmaceutical sciences, medical devices, medical education, health care, psychology, water quality and air quality (environmental engineering), and geology. For scientific editing services, visit the Scientific Communications page.


The heart of my work is editing, writing, and communications management, and it extends to marketing communications and website content development. I work with layout, design, and publishing tools such as Adobe Creative and, of course, Microsoft Office. I collaborate with graphic artists, web developers, programmers, social media managers, photographers, and other writers as the project requires.
