Mary Guiden is a Seattle-based writer, editor and media relations expert. By day, I write about and uncover science and medical stories, and do my best to get them out to the public. I work with both national and local reporters, trying to match them up with experts who can help tell the stories.
In a past life, I was a journalist and covered health, health policy, medicine, science and music. I wrote investigative articles when I was feeling serious and, on the side, wrote reviews of shows and previews and profiles of the artists. It was an incredibly cool gig, and included a chance to either see or chat with Rufus Wainwright, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Badly Drawn Boy, Melissa Ferrick, The Killers, The Shins, Death Cab for Cutie, Jenny Lewis, Jason Mraz, Michael Buble, My Morning Jacket and Elvis Perkins, among others.
My work has appeared in The Seattle Times, The Nation, Stateline.org, Puget Sound Business Journal, Washington Law & Politics, Seattle Star, Washington City Paper, Denver’s Westword and Baltimore City Paper.
