I write about science and society.
Science doesn't happen in a vacuum. Research is carried out by real people. It affects and is affected by society. I write to emphasize this, whether it's translating the latest climate change ecology research or profiling the scientists who are behind the scenes. I'm also interested in the intersection of science and #scicomm with race and gender, both in practical terms (environmental justice, food sovereignty) and representation (whose stories get told?)(see NASW's 2020 demographics report). Through my editing work, I help scientists share their research and tell their stories the way they want to.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to collaborate on a project on any of these issues!

I founded and serve as editor-in-chief for the Michigan AWIS blog, which I created to elevate the voices of women in STEM in the Michigan community. We provide these women a platform to share their stories and highlight the work they're doing with the aim of increasing visibility of diverse voices in STEM. I also edit for Michigan Science Writers, and through my GSA fellowship, I'm working with geology grant recipients to help them find their narratives and share their science. I find it incredibly rewarding to help people craft their stories the way they want them to be told.
I love helping people find their narrative and editing pieces to ensure stories are told smoothly and with the author's intended effect. Let me know if I can help you!
