About Ilima Loomis

Ilima Loomis: Freelance Science and Content Marketing Writer

I help businesses and organizations tell their stories with content that's precise enough to satisfy the experts and simple enough for the lay person to understand.

As a freelance writer, I’ve specialized in healthcare, HR, science, and travel, writing for organizations like the Cleveland Clinic, AAA, The Nature Conservancy, Hilton, and the Society for Human Resources Management.

I’ve written about Hawaii for more than 18 years and have an insider’s knowledge of the Aloha State. (Fun fact: the ‘ilima, my namesake, is the official flower of the island of Oahu.) I serve local clients like Hawaiian Airlines, Bank of Hawaii, and ‘Iolani School, and help organizations based on the U.S. mainland when they need Hawaii coverage.

Before I started writing for businesses, I spent many years as a journalist, contributing to magazines like Science, Discover, and National Geographic Traveler.
I previously served as the managing editor of Spirituality & Health magazine, where I conceived, assigned, and edited stories, managed the editorial pipeline, and once interviewed a pet psychic. I started my career as a community reporter for The Maui News, where I won awards for investigative and public service journalism.

Ilima Loomis: Author

I’m the author of several books, including Rough Riders, which won the Hawaii Literary Arts Council's Elliot Cades Award. My book Eclipse Chaser will be published in December by Houghton Mifflin.

I work out of my home office in beautiful Haiku, Maui, where I am assisted by the world’s two laziest dogs.

My clients come back to me again and again because they know I’m easy to work with and my work will be solid, polished, and on time. Let’s talk about what I can write for you.
