Influenced by my childhood days of reading Ranger Rick, I've always wanted to work with and write about nature. Growing up in a beach cottage in a coastal town, I was introduced to the power of the environment early on and I view climate change through a personal lens, which shapes all of my work.
I strive to highlight stories about environmental justice, gender, and race as they pertain to environmental issues. I believe race and gender are at the center of every environmental issue, and thus they should be at the center of all environmental journalism.
Current life goal: to visit every U.S. National Park. Current professional goal: to be an environmental journalist, policymaker, researcher, and Saturday Night Live writer all at once. I'll let you know how it goes.
