My name is Cassie. I am many things: a writer, a social media guru, a photographer, a nature lover, and most importantly: a doer.
I live in Columbus, Ohio where I write for several talented scientific publications. My work appears in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers' Magazine and on their affliate site, the Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering, EcoWatch, and Inverse.
In the past two years since I graduated from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in December 2015, I have been chasing my dreams as a science writer.
Starting in January 2016, I had a four month long position as a science communications internship with the Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island. I covered stories on environmental research, physics, chemistry, technology, and much more as well as press releases on the Lab's public events. This set me up perfectly for what came next: national service!
In May 2016, I became a Student Conservation Association (SCA) and AmeriCorps member serving as a social media coordinator for the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Site in Hyde Park, NY. In just six months, I tripled their following on Instagram and nearly doubled it on Facebook and Twitter. I also found time to develop a weekly blog series on the history of the park and planned park events. Then, I decided to go to the big city!
Following my service, I was an editorial & outreach fellow for Inverse, an online news site covering all things science and constantly asking what's next? I wrote about astronomy, environmental science, health, and robotics. I also helped the social media team develop their strategy and build partner relationships. I was in this role until June 2017 when I decided it was time to go back to my roots.
Nowadays, I live in a rural little town with a horse ranch in my backyard. I write from my desk without the sounds of subways or sirens and I believe my work is better for it. I've even got to work on my second novel! In my spare time, I like to take my dog kayaking, check out local breweries, and travel with my friends and family.
