I’m a freelance science/health/environment journalist in Washington, D.C. who speaks Spanish conversationally. I love long walks in the rainforest, 9-hour bus rides and high-altitude hikes.
Formerly a senior editor at Everyday Health, I’ve also reported for NPR, Reuters Health, Nature, WHYY radio, WESA radio, Deutsche Welle, Christian Science Monitor, Healthline, National Geographic, Nature Medicine, Al Jazeera America, Nature, DEMAND-ASME Global Development Review, The Atlantic, Stanford Business Insights, Smithsonian Magazine, Science Magazine, etc.
I have a master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism with concentrations in photo documentary, science journalism and radio reporting. As an undergrad, I studied environmental health at UC Berkeley and the University of Oxford, UK.
In 2015, I accomplished my life goal of reporting from Antarctica.
