ALL ABOUT ME
Dance served as my unconventional gateway into science journalism.
I spent my college years sprinting from
mirror-lined dance studios to dimly lit neuroscience laboratories and then
back again for rehearsal.
I translated the intricacies of memory formation and neurological disease into movement phrases, and I brought those
to the stage.
NOW, AS A SCIENCE JOURNALIST,
MY GOAL IS THE SAME:
I want to get science out of the laboratory and in front of fresh eyes.
I'm the health channel editor for Live Science, and you
can also find my byline in The Scientist Magazine,
Science News, Space.com, Eos, Mongabay,
The San Jose Mercury News, Monterey County Herald,
and Asahi Shimbun GLOBE+, among other outlets.
I previously worked at Live Science as a health news editor
and as a staff reporter. As a reporter, I primarily covered
health and medicine but also wrote animal, evolutionary
biology, environment and conservation stories.
Before joining Live Science, I received expert training
in writing, reporting and digital media content creation
at the UC Santa Cruz Science Communication Program.
I also served as a public information officer at the
Stanford University School of Medicine, UC San Francisco,
and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology.
In heading the Live Science health desk, I am
always eager to dive into the nitty-gritty mechanisms
behind a disease, while also tackling stories that provide
readers with practical, actionable information
about their bodies and health care.
