Hi, I'm Bri!

I've always looked at the world through the lens of a story, full of characters and metaphors and grand themes. At the same time, I'm super curious about the world around me and what makes it all work. 

I spent years working in a lab, getting my BS in Chemistry from Hope College and an MS in Chemistry from the University of Michigan. I made molecules, linked them into polymers, played with electricity, and so much more. But I was always drawn away from the bench and towards how science and story can work together to not just explain the world, but also change it... so I decided to take the leap and venture outside the lab to start building a career on those principles!

My writing portfolio now spans multiple scientific disciplines including chemistry, physics and medicine. I'm an incoming AAAS Mass Media Fellow at Discover Magazine, and I recently wrapped up a science writing internship at Fermilab. My freelance work has appeared in publications including Chemistry World and Discover.
