Generally About Me
I am a space science communicator located in South Dakota, although Houston, Texas will always be considered my real home.
Currently, I am a specialist for the Landsat program at EROS. When I am not working or volunteering, I enjoy capturing moments with photography and videography, as well as running a science communication blog “The Particle Publication.” Some of my other hobbies include embroidery, knitting, amateur herpetology, and scuba diving.
I graduated with a Masters of Arts in Advertising Student at the University of Texas in Austin in May 2021, focusing in researching the intersection of science and public relations. My professional interests lie in strategic science communication and public relations, particularly aerospace, earth, and environmental sciences. I am always seeking opportunities in science communication and public relations.
NASA & Wildlife Internship
I have experience in science and engineering public relations and communication, between working (onsite and virtually) at NASA Langley Research Center and volunteering for The Urban Interface. I have mastered an array of skills including social media management, content creation, website management, and public relations.
Strategic Communication, commonly referred to as public relations, seeks to create mutually beneficial long-term relationships between organizations and the public by communicating creatively and persuasively.
With a healthy interest in both environmental and space sciences, I keep busy with looking for opportunities to educate the public about the world that we live in either through my own means or working for other organizations.
I have experience writing copy for brochures, flyers, feature articles, press releases, and informational advertising, as well as short form and long form blog pieces.
Photography has become more than a hobby for me, where I use my skills professional to capture images for places I volunteer and work. The galleries you see on this website include my personal and professional photos.
