Tayla Holman About Tayla

About Tayla

I am a Boston-based writer and editor with over 10 years’ experience in B2B and B2C communication, particularly in content strategy and development. With a background in English and journalism, I have a passion for storytelling, whether it’s through community reporting or brand messaging.

I specialize in distilling complex information, from explaining the implications of a data breach, to distinguishing between different types of multiple sclerosis. Whether it’s for a general audience or geared toward C-level executives, I strive for clear and accurate content that is educational and empowering. 

I have written for HCA Healthcare, Dignity Health, Mass General Hospital, Abbott Labs, GE Healthcare, Healthline, the Dorchester Reporter and DOWNTOWN Magazine, among other publications. In past roles, I have managed teams of freelance writers, developed an editorial style guide, and copy edited communications across multiple channels, from scripts for TV ads to email newsletters to print marketing collateral.

I was a contributor to Massachusetts’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Nonfiction in 2018 and my work has been cited in the Journal of Hip-Hop Studies and the Quinnipiac Health Law Journal.

I received my M.S. in health communication from Boston University, and received a B.A. in print journalism and English with a concentration in publishing studies and literature from Hofstra University. During my time at Hofstra, I co-founded the student-run hyper-local news website Long Island Reporter and acted as managing editor, as well as served as president of the Hofstra Association of Black Journalists (HABJ).
