Hi! I’m Theresa “Sam” Houghton.

As Chief Nerd at the Modern Health Nerd, I write health and wellness content for health coaches, fitness professionals, food & beverage brands, and health supplement suppliers.

I love digging deep into topics like health and wellness to learn and explore until that amazing moment when everything “clicks” and a piece of writing comes together.

It’s my nerdy pleasure to provide blog article writing services, ebook writing services, and lead magnet design to support your mission of helping people eat better, move more, and live healthier lives. I specialize in well-researched, science-backed content that’s 100% human written. (No AI, ever. )
