I'm a science journalist based in the Pacific Northwest, reporting on healthcare, ecology and social justice. I'm a graduate of NYU's Science Health and Environmental Reporting Program and former intern at Scholastic and Live Science. I've written about child welfare in the age of covid-19, the physics of bubbles, and a mushroom that's worth more than gold.

My roots are in science. Before getting my start in journalism, I tramped through the streams of Crater Lake National Park, collecting data on threatened frogs, and crouched in the wildfire charred brush of Southern California measuring plant recovery.

When I'm not reporting, I'm either out on my bike, or have my nose buried in a book.
