White papers and case studies
“Sheeva is not only a solid writer. She’s someone that can be thrown into a topic, understand it immediately, and deliver quickly. I have worked with Sheeva on a variety of projects from 2,000-word white papers examining the Information Technology industry to 150-word excerpts about esoteric networking protocols. Every time, she’s come through for us — even in a pinch.” — Marketing Director, IT Education Website
I ghostwrite informative, persuasive, research-backed white papers and case studies for clients to:
- Raise awareness
- Inform key stakeholders
- Generate interest in an idea, subject, or product
- Drive decision-making and action
I have written white papers for healthcare, government, supply chain executives, members of Congress, and other influential audiences. I ghostwrote a white paper for Kaplan Medical comparing M.D. vs. D.O. paths for doctors.
Case studies tend to showcase a problem and how it was solved. I ghostwrote this case study about a microlending software solution.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sheeva Azma on multiple writing projects geared towards healthcare academics. She [translates] highly technical material into content that is both informative and enjoyable to read.” — Senior Marketing Manager, Fortune 500 Company
I write white papers and case studies for clients at the intersections of health, policy, science, technology, finance, and business. For more info, contact me.
Content writing, copywriting, and ads
“I am so happy that I was able to work with Sheeva on polishing my biosketch for a grant. Throughout the process, she asked excellent questions, and had great ideas and revisions to contribute. Regardless of how my grant scores, I would love to work with her again!” — Scientist at a Major University
I’m a content writer and copywriter who is a bylined journalist, published scientist, and former DC insider. I love writing authoritative blogs, articles, and advertisements. I’ve written and edited everything from tweets to entire books.
Here are some examples of my writing and editing:
- Ghostwritten blog about scientific service models for PPD (part of Thermo Fisher Scientific)
- Health journalism piece on racism and Long COVID for Patient Safety Movement Foundation, which was accepted to NPR’s Shots Blog, but later pulled because there was too much news happening (!) in August 2021.
- Scientific fact-checking and script editing for YouTooBio’s video explainer on RT-PCR.
“If you hire Sheeva, she will bring life to your project, and she will make it perfect and beyond what you never thought was possible.” — Steeve Simbert

I’ve written the book on applying public relations in science communication. I apply my expertise in journalism, marketing, and politics to help people do more with less and work smarter, not harder. Get in touch!
Political messaging: content creation, digital strategy, speeches and talking points
“Sheeva…created great content and a personal messaging strategy that appealed with voters across the Commonwealth on both sides of the aisle…I strongly recommend Sheeva’s work and can confidently say she was a valuable asset to our organizing program.” — Digital Content Assistant, John Fetterman for US Senate
I’m a huge politics nerd: I’ve been working on political campaigns since I was 16, and I’ve interned in the US Congress. In the 2022 midterm elections, I helped win two US Senate “toss-up” campaigns through my work in voter outreach, digital media strategy, and digital field organizing. I write political campaign content, including speeches, talking points, and social media content. I am especially skilled in crafting strategic bipartisan messaging, especially as related to issues in science and technology. I’d love to help you build a winning communications strategy – get in touch!
“Thank you so much for giving the workshop today! We had many attendees … and got feedback from them – they all loved it!” — Science Communication Workshop Organizer, McMaster University
