I love birds and I love writing. I’ve contributed to the publications of the Audubon Society, the American Bird Conservancy, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, as well as working for the American Ornithological Society for five years, first as an independent contractor managing publicity for their science journals and then as their first full-time Communications Specialist. Currently I’m working on a proposal for my first book, which will be a popular science book about all the different methods scientists have used to track bird migration over the years.
I have worked in wildlife biology and environmental education as well as science communication — fields that have taken me to the prairies of Saskatchewan, the Australian Outback, the barrier islands of Georgia, and Wisconsin’s North Woods. When I’m not writing or running around after my toddler, I’m gradually filling my backyard in Walla Walla, Washington, with bird-friendly native plants.
