Writer/Editor

I am currently the senior staff writer at Earthjustice, an environmental nonprofit that sues polluters who threaten our environment and our health. Previously, I worked as an editorial assistant at Plenty magazine and as a freelance journalist. My writing has appeared in several publications including Grist, Scientific American, Environmental Health News and Earth Island Journal. I'm a big believer in the power of storytelling to make a positive difference in this world.
