“Working with Lisa on many award-winning health features for Reader’s Digest and Ladies Home Journal was one of the highlights of my years as a magazine editor. She was always up-to-the-minute on important new research and medical breakthroughs, with a rare talent for weaving intimate details into “real people” stories so readers would truly care about the outcome. I remember one profile of a young woman who had a stroke while in the shower. We followed her through the dramatic details of her symptoms, her husband finding her and miraculously getting her to a hospital in time for a groundbreaking (and lifesaving) clot-removal procedure from her brain. She recovered completely. This article was incredibly popular with the 35 million readers of Reader’s Digest at that time, and the warning signs Lisa included no doubt saved lives.”

“Lisa is a pleasure to work with. Professional, reliable and talented, her stories are always thoughtful, well-written and informative. Lisa has written several stories involving our clients and she always gets excellent placement and provides accurate information. Plus, she’s always open to finding new angles, researching new studies, and approaching topics from interesting perspectives.”

“Lisa Collier Cool is not only a supremely talented writer, but also a consummate professional. When I was Features Editor at Cosmopolitan, where Lisa was then a contributing editor, and later when I was Executive Editor at Ladies’ Home Journal, Lisa always did thorough research, conducted great interviews, and wrote with finesse and flair. She also never missed a deadline. I highly recommend her for assignments in both print and digital media.”

“As editor of Penthouse magazine, I had the privilege of working with Lisa Collier Cool for many years. She wrote several articles for the magazine, covering crime, psychology, and popular culture. But her most outstanding achievements were in investigative medical reporting, especially on our government’s shameful treatment of veterans, the harmful incompetence of HMOs, and the hidden and fatal dangers of Hepatitis C. All of these important articles won awards for Ms. Cool and helped bolster our reputation for cutting-edge investigative reports. In addition, she eagerly helped promote her pieces by giving dozens of interviews to national radio programs. In every respect—research, reporting, and writing—she was unfailingly perfect and professional; the kind of writer that editors treasure.”

“Lisa Collier Cool, I could not have had a better writer for Beware the Night than you. From coming with me on supernatural investigations—and even to an exorcism—to vividly and accurately recreating some of my most terrifying cases, you truly put your heart and soul into telling my story, Your talent and dedication has played a big role in our book making the bestseller list and becoming a major motion picture that’s earned nearly $90 million (Deliver Us From Evil, Sony Screen Gems, 2014). I’m looking forward to working with you on our next book—and the one after that!”
Ralph Sarchie Demonologist and Retired NYPD Sergeant

“Lisa Collier Cool has such a genius for translating complex medical and scientific studies into vivid, everyday language that we wish we could award her an honorary medical degree! She is, by far, the best writer we’ve ever worked with.”

“Lisa is a valuable resource for Family Circle’s regular “Ahead of the Health Curve” advertorial series. She excels at creating smart, actionable content about women’s and family health issues, and crafting engaging yet authoritative copy that aligns perfectly with Family Circle’s voice and unique approach to health.

Lisa is a thorough professional who immediately understands what we need, and delivers ready-to-publish content even on the tightest deadline. It’s always a pleasure to work with her.”

Marianne Bakija

“I served as Lisa’s editor on a sponsored-content project (topic: employee health benefits) for WSJ Custom Studios. The stories she submitted were exceptionally clean and well-written, and always delivered on time, even in the face of tight deadlines. Throughout, she was meticulous in her craft and conscientious in her dealings with me. In short, she exceeded my expectations. It was a pleasure to work with Lisa, and I hope to get the opportunity to do so again.”

“Lisa launched our new blog, Health Horizons and wrote over 40 weekly blog posts containing well written relevant health information for doctor’s and patients alike. Her ability to convey complex scientific information into easily understandable language was invaluable. Shortly after our blog launched the hits on our website rose by almost 1/3 and her blog posts were consistently one of the most visited pages on our website. She was very easy to work with and seemed to inherently understand the direction we wanted to go.”

“Lisa hired me a number of times in her capacity as lead health blogger/editor for GE Healthymagination.com, a consumer health blog. She is an exceptional editor: She communicates clearly about the scope of an assignment; offers helpful support; and gives excellent feedback. Lisa is highly knowledgeable about health news, medical advances and research, and knows precisely what kind of content will meet the client’s objectives for the site. Responsive, approachable and professional, Lisa is a real pleasure to work with.”

Jane Langille
Health and medical writer

“Lisa is so talented, incredibly skilled and brilliant that has been a true honor to work with her as a partner in prevention on my monthly patient newsletter, CME flyers, content for our new medical practice website, and daily social media updates—as well as our book, Beat the heart Attack Gene. My only fear is that she’ll become such a famous writer that we won’t get to work together any more—she really is that AMAZING!!!”

Dr. Amy Doneen, DNP, ARNP
Medical Director of the Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention Center

Social Media Management

“When Lisa started managing our social media we had 159 likes on Facebook, 515 followers on Twitter and 411 on Linkedin. We now have over 5000 likes on Facebook, over 17,000 followers on Twitter and over 1500 followers on Linkedin. Her promotion of the 2014 Symposium via highly targeted social media campaigns contributed to nearly double the attendance seen in 2013. During the event her live tweeting perfectly captured the event and led to even better social media engagement. She designed eye-catching graphics for special occasions, including holiday messages and event promotion and consistently found news and information that engaged and rapidly grew CHL’s social media fans and followers, while also generating great content to spread the word about new tests and CHL’s research through blogging and newsletters. During Lisa’s social media management CHL rose to number one on Twitter and Facebook compared to our competitors.”
