Workshops & Presentations

Teaching is what I do best.

I deliver unique, high-impact workshops on science communication for scientists and students. I have nearly 20 years' experience teaching/coaching undergraduate writing. I also lead memorable field walks and talks on forest ecology (especially with a bent of climate change, social justice, spiders, or trees) for the public. Attendee feedback from a recent presentation deemed the session 'worth the price of conference admission alone.'
