Content Producer

As a content producer, my projects range from author to educator guide to new media. I'm always looking for new projects to challenge me and to grow my own skills. I especially love new product development. Have an interesting project starting up? Let me know!

Educational Consultant

As an educational consultant, I work with content producers to ensure their products are pedagogically and developmentally appropriate for their audiences. I specialize in curriculum development and scopes & sequences, as well as reviewing for appropriate content level and reading level. Current projects include consulting for the Youtube channels CrashCourseKids and SciShowKids. 


As the literacy, learning, and STEM editor for National Geographic Kids Books, I have the privilege of working with some incredible explorers, telling their amazing stories. In addition, I manage our literacy series, including the National Geographic Kids Readers and National Geographic Kids Chapters, which bring the world to kids at an accessible reading level. A love of learning is infectious, and I'm passionate about sharing mine with a new generation of explorers.
