Youna Angevin-Castro

Wellness Content Solutions

Are you looking for someone to help you take your Health and Wellness brand and make it shine? I am an experienced writer and communications specialist, specialising in the Health and Wellness sector.

Hi there, I'm Youna, and I specialise in writing about health and wellness. I am passionate about improving the quality of health and wellness communication and helping empower people who have limited knowledge of science and medicine to make informed decisions about their health and wellness.

I am committed to delivering evidence-based information and undertake extensive research for each article I publish. My objective is to unpack complex scientific concepts and make them accessible without dumbing things down.

I understand that every business is different, so I work closely with you to hone your unique brand personality and voice for maximum impact, while implementing content marketing strategies that we know will work.

Through my work – and yours – I want to inspire people to undertake positive behaviour change as they embark on their personal health and wellbeing journey. So whether your goal is to inform, motivate, persuade or educate, we’re here help you speak to your tribe with confidence and authority.

I am a member of the Australasian Medical Writers Association and Australian Science Communicators.

Q & A

Whats the best thing to happen to you in your career to date?

I have been fortunate enough to work as a contributor to two fantastic book projects throughout my career. One was a science reference book, and as a 'science nerd' this was a wonderful project to be involved in. The best part is being able to share my work with my children.

What does a typical work week look like for you?:

My weeks are varied, which is what I love about freelancing. One day I might be interviewing someone for a magazine article, and the next I'll be meeting with a new client to discuss their marketing goals.

My favourite part of my job is meeting new clients, and learning about their businesses. Every business has its own personality, and I love learning how to express their unique brand voice in writing.

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

I work from a fantastic home studio with a fabulous view of a mature magnolia tree in our yard. I love it!

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

I have a Bachelor's degree in Science as well as a postgraduate degree in PR & Communication. I've also studied as a Health & Nutrition coach. One of the biggest issues facing the wellness sector at the moment is the publication of poorly written - and in some cases dangerous - health information on the Internet. I'm on a mission to promote quality health and wellness information that is backed by evidence-based research.

What are the tools of your trade?

I couldn't work without the following tools:

  • My Apple Mac
  • LinkedIn - my primary source of referrals
  • Spotify - the 'Focus' soundtracks are great for concentrating while I write
  • Adobe Creative Cloud - I'm a graphics junkie, and frankly, nothing beats the holy trinity of Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator
  • My Macquarie Dictionary and Thesaurus
  • My KikkiK Wall Planner and Diary
  • Wunderlist app on my iPhone

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

I love collaborating with others. Freelancing can sometimes be a lonely pursuit, so when the opportunity presents itself to share ideas with others, I'm in!

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

After many years as a freelancer, I've learned that everyone - no matter who they are, where they come from, or what they do - has a story to tell. I've had the privilege of helping many people capture those stories, and it remains one of the most enjoyable parts of my job.
