Working as a contractor at the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Research and Development opened my eyes to a new setting—government. There were some major differences in working for a newspaper and working for a governmental agency when it came to communications. Also, I was introduced to the intriguing world of communicating scientific research and technical topics to non-scientific audiences. This passion would pave my way to future ventures in the realm of science journalism.
