About Kelsey

Hello students, thank you for visiting me today! I am a media producer by trade who has worked in exhibits, newspapers, public radio, and public television. I have a deep interest in science journalism and because of that I graduated with a degree in natural resources management. My side interests include botany, ecology, climate change, Arctic science, illustration, painting, and civil rights.

I came to Wyzant because I have been in your shoes before -- I have a lot of different interests and this has meant being a rookie at a new thing many different times. While I have academic and professional experience in these fields, I know how tough it can be to learn, and want to give you an environment that is a little more casual and engaging than the typical classroom.

I never had trouble with math until I took Calculus, and then it all crumbled. There, I needed to learn what we were doing and why, and I came out of the experience with a better understanding and appreciation for math. I also have experience in statistics, chemistry, and trigonometry, but after Calculus, algebra holds a special place in my heart.

I've spent three summers in the Alaska boreal forest doing field work and have also worked in a soils laboratory. My other jobs include being a student assistant for a geobotany group, a citizen science project, and a museum herbarium. My coursework in natural resources management led me to an undergraduate thesis in moss-lichen interactions. As a science journalist, I had to learn how to talk about many unfamiliar fields by asking lots of questions and doing thorough research in a subject.

I have been a copy editor and science reporter at a college newspaper. I am comfortable working with people who need help grasping the rules of the language, and am respectful toward their work and the story they are trying to tell.

I am new to this, so let's learn together! Please contact me if you have more questions.
