Freelance writer and communications consultant specializing in sustainability and environmental issues
I've always had two passions - writing and sustainability.
Prior to working as a freelance writer, I was a staff reporter for the environmental website Earth911 and wrote a regular column on local environmental issues for 11 Patch.com news websites in the San Francisco Peninsula area. My work has also appeared at Huffington Post, TriplePundit and Offbeat Families.
Before I was an environmental reporter and communications consultant, I coordinated environmental programs and conducted outreach campaigns for various Bay Area cities and counties for seven years. I have a degree in cultural anthropology from UC Berkeley.
While sustainability is my area of expertise, I am equally comfortable writing about other topics: Throughout my career, I have learned to explain complicated environmental problems in simple, easy-to-digest language – a skill that I harness when approaching non-environmental issues.
