At the Encyclopedia of Life, I served as the Science Writing Intern. My main task was to draft articles about EOL for other publications. I also spent a significant amount of time working on our quarterly newsletter, EOLetter. I also maintained a media database, keeping track of each time Encyclopedia of Life was mentioned in a news publication anywhere in the world. Lastly, I performed general office tasks.

At the Trust for Public Land, I worked for both the Center for Land and Water and the Center for City Park Excellence. For the Center for Land and Water, I drafted case study reports of our Greenprinting projects for brochures and other publications. I also drafted responses to RFP’s and RFQ’s for open space plans. Lastly, I researched upcoming projects and assessed their viability. For the Center for City Park Excellence, I conducted research on community gardening, and verified the accuracy of our recent Parks survey.
