I’m an award-winning writer with 25+ years of experience creating content for consumer publications, higher education, and science organizations and agencies. My clients include NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Colorado State University, University of Colorado, Pacific Disaster Center, the Phoenix Mars Lander mission, and many others.
In addition to my freelance work, I’ve served as editor of NASA’s Sensing Our Planet, Mines Magazine at Colorado School of Mines, Colorado Water magazine, and the Natural Hazards Observer. I earned a master’s degree in journalism at Colorado State University, and I am a member of the National Association of Science Writers.
I’m also an experienced travel writer, blogger, and photographer. In 2018, I published a full-color guidebook titled Utah Canyon Country: 20 Must-See Sites and Short Hikes, which was awarded the gold medal in Western Regional Nonfiction at the 2019 Independent Publisher (IPPY) Awards.
I love hiking, travel, and landscape photography. When I’m not working on a writing project, I’m usually on a road trip with my camera.
Laurie was one of the best and most professional of the journalists I’ve worked with. Her finished article was excellent and accurately captured the science as well or better than any other article that I’ve been interviewed for.
