I write about science and society.
Science doesn't happen in a vacuum. It affects and is affected by society. I write to emphasize this, whether it's translating the latest climate change and ecology research for concerned communities or profiling the scientists who are behind the scenes, working to understand the world around us. By crafting compelling, people-centric narratives that put science in a social context, I help both experts and lifelong learners sate their curiosity—and hopefully inspire them to explore a little more.
I'm open to write and edit for outlets and institutions on a range of topics, including (but not limited to):
ecology, environment, and climate change
conservation and environmental justice
geoscience and space sciences
interesting people doing interesting things (making paints out of soils? running to raise money for science? doing research somewhere exciting?)
My freelance work has been published in Scientific American, Smithsonian Mag, Eos, Civil Eats, and more.

I founded and served as editor-in-chief for the Michigan AWIS blog, which I created to elevate the voices of women in STEM in the Michigan community. I also edited for Michigan Science Writers, and through my GSA fellowship, I worked 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, accurately, and with the author's intended effect. Let me know if I can help you!
