I segued into journalism from science, where I worked alongside Alaskan fishermen studying fish guts and collaborated with Ethiopian researchers to conserve native church forests.
I traded in my life as a field biologist for a career in public service journalism. I've reported from commercial fishing boats, sacred mountain tops, and budding strawberry fields to shed light on the constant tango between human activity and ecological health.
I hope to use my understanding of science and fervor for social justice to investigate how people and the planet can prosper together.
My reporting has been featured in The San Jose Mercury News, Mongabay and Science News. I am currently an editorial intern at the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
