Meet AWAI-Trained Writer:
I am a molecular biologist and geneticist with 15+ years in research, 18 years as a persuasive science writer, and considerable experience teaching and mentoring high school, college, and graduate students. My aim as a writer is always clarity of expression coupled with a winsome style.
I am retiring from full time work, but would like to keep writing, so I have decided to move into copy writing as a part time career. Having written and edited grants, scientific articles, blogs, books, funding appeals, short fiction, and poetry, I am pretty versatile, and I enjoy learning new things.
Education: Bachelors in biology at MIT, PhD at the University of Washington in developmental biology, and a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University in cell and molecular biology. For the last 18 years I have been a research scientist and director of science communication for Discovery Institute.
My husband of 32 years and I have 3 adult children and a standard poodle named Logi.
