From October 2017 - March 2018, I worked as the science communications fellow at Washington Sea Grant. During this time, I learned some great lessons from the communications team at WSG while building my writing and communications portfolio. In addition to social media campaigns and outreach, I had the opportunity to write and publish three articles in the quarterly magazine Sea Star:
- "A small oyster poised for a big comeback," detailing UW research on advance restoration of the Olympia oyster.
- "Researchers document salmon diversity using ancient DNA," which recounts WSU research showing loss of genetic diversity among northwestern salmon using exciting techniques.
- "The faces of Washington Sea Grant workshops," an article that introduces some of WSG's most prolific workshop instructors and how their lives have impacted their teaching.
