I'm a science journalist and fact-checker based in Portland, Oregon, reporting on healthcare, ecology and social justice. My work highlights the intersection between the human experience and science — whether that's wildfire, chronic pain, or houselessness. Whenever possible, I amplify stories rooted in the Pacific Northwest. 

While a graduate student in Science Journalism at New York University, I interned at Scholastic and became passionate about writing for children. Today, I'm a regular contributor at Science World Magazine, a middle-school classroom magazine, where I aim to make the climate crisis and COVID-19 pandemic accessible for young people.

You can also find my work in Popular Science, where I'm a contributing writer covering health and the wellness industry as well as the New York Times, Slate, the Daily Beast and more.

When I'm not writing, you can find me digging in the garden or running in Forest Park.
