My blog has my most recent adventures and writing pieces. On it, I aim to combine science and writing by explaining wildlife science in a digestible way. I also detail different research I aid with and outdoor adventures I take.
In Oct. 2017, I was selected as one of 22 student fellows out of 167 applicants to attend and cover the World Conference of Science Journalists 2017 in San Francisco, Calif. I produced two pieces as coverage of the sessions: one on neurons in the brain, and the other on properly profiling scientists.
During Summer 2016, I was an intern for my hometown paper, The Reading Eagle. Click here to view my clips.
From Aug. 2014 to Jan. 2016, I wrote for West Virginia University’s student newspaper, The Daily Athenaeum, as an Arts & Entertainment beat reporter. Click here for clips.
From freshman to senior year of high school, I wrote for the weekly teen insert Voices in The Reading Eagle. During my senior year, I worked in the newsroom and was an intern as well. Click here for clips.
“Just Another Research Project” – As part of a beat reporting class in the Fall 2015 semester, our final project was a longform story. I was the environmental beat (no surprise), and this was the time that the Volkswagen scandal leaked. Researchers at WVU led this project, and I had the opportunity to take on this story and flesh it out. It was published Dec. 2015 here with the rest of my classmates’ stories.
April 29, 2016: MediaShift and the WVU Reed College of Media co-sponsored a Women’s IoT Makeathon Event. Afterwards, I was asked to write up a guest post about the event. Find it here.
April 30, 2016: I taught community members about using sensors at this WVU Reed College of Media workshop: the info page. I was featured on wvu.edu to promote the event.
