ABOUT ME

Bold creativity informed by analytics.

Florida mangrove and starfish research (

I am an award-winning, PhD-having digital creator who is unstoppably and loudly enthusiastic about how science makes life better.

I work to diversify how people interact with science online. I also push for those with power to support risk-takers and remove barriers for others.

I mostly make stuff from scratch for social media and the internet, like videos, photos, drawings, written pieces, and websites. I am especially familiar with articulating communications strategies and balancing stakeholder needs for brands and organizations.

I use my personal channels to build community and trust around motherhood. And since I'm a scientist, it's all evidence-based and fact-checked.

I strive for (non-performative) allyship in all my work. If you are in search of a safe STEM/scicomm space for any reason and think I can help, please feel free to get in touch. Or if you have feedback or suggestions about how I can improve the equity- or justice-focused aspects of my practice, you are welcome to let me know.
