It’s been a busy year. I worked as a science journalism intern for Wick Communications writing science stories for the Green Valley News and the Sahuarita Sun. You can find these stories under the journalistic writing tab on the website menu. I also completed the professional project requirement for my journalism master’s degree. My final committee meeting and presentation are on May 12, 2014. Later today I’ll be traveling to Santa Fe, New Mexico for the Santa Fe Science Writing Workshop. ¬†Thank you for following!

I recently published an article on bighorn sheep conservation in the Tucson Weekly.The article begins as follows:

“The killing of three recently released bighorn sheep by mountain lions in the Pusch Ridge Wilderness Area near Tucson focused attention on predation as a threat to re-establishing a viable herd in the Santa Catalina Mountains. Reintroducing bighorn sheep raises other concerns as well including the impact of disease. Between predation and disease, a small herd of bighorn can be wiped out in a matter of weeks.”
