Shortly after graduating from college with a B.A. in environmental studies and writing, she had an inkling that she wanted to combine her two fields, but took a circuitous pass through jobs in outdoor education, criminal defense law, and city government before finding her way into science writing. Since then, she has written for publications including High Country News, Discover, and Modern Farmer, fact-checked for Knowable and Mosaic, and produced audio stories for Santa Fe’s public radio station
