Sarah Handzel, BSN, RN


Sarah Handzel, BSN, RN began writing professionally in 2016 as a way to use her medical knowledge beyond the bedside. Before hanging out her shingle, she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and worked as a registered nurse in multiple specialties, including pharmaceuticals, operating room/surgery, endocrinology, and family practice. With over nine years of clinical practice experience, her unique insights into the healthcare industry help her craft compelling content that targets both healthcare consumers and clinicians.

Sarah counts many well-known healthcare organizations and businesses among her clients, including Healthgrades, Mayo Clinic, Aha Media Group, Wolters Kluwer, and UVA Cancer Center. When she’s not writing, she enjoys yoga, scuba diving, cross stitching, and exploring local hiking trails with her husband.
