Assignment Editor

I am one of the planning editors for PRI's The World, which means I'm constantly thinking about what's going to go on the show tomorrow and the days after that.  It's ironic, since I don't consider myself a planner by nature.

I also work with reporters to help them tell stories. Before I arrived at The World, I worked as a producer and writer at WBUR in Boston. I have a masters in science journalism, which comes in handy from time to time. When I'm not at work, I'm happy to tune out the news, by biking, hiking, not cooking, and hanging with my family.
