I am a science journalist who specializes in mental health and addiction. As a science writer with a background in biotechnology, I enjoy turning complex subjects into stories that everyone can understand—and apply to their lives.
I am a science journalist, writer, and editor. As a science journalist, I have written for both consumer science and scientific trade publications. As a science writer, I have worked on technical publications for a wide range of organizations, including biotechnology and scientific publishing companies.
I earned my BA in biology from Northwestern University in Chicago and my MS in journalism from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.
I am open to a variety of science writing projects. As a science journalist, I can pitch or take assignments. As a science writer, I can tackle marketing and technical communications projects, including technical guides, application notes, brochures, and web site copy. Please email me for samples.
