I have college degrees in history and environmental journalism, and enjoy communicating and teaching and thus learning even further on both. Currently, I am a communication specialist for two Appalachian Mountains conservation organizations where I write and edit content, create videos and audio products, and manage websites. Before locating to the mountains, I worked for the USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center as a writer and multimedia specialist where I helped produced feature articles, online content, and developed a video podcast series. If I am not writing or reading books on history, I like to play guitar, which I have been playing for about 5 years now.
