I believe that story is a powerful vehicle that bears infinite potential to change the world. I work with clients to develop innovative storytelling strategies, apply an intersectional lens, and incorporate engaging science concepts, prosocial elements, and social justice themes into their content. I feel so fortunate to carry forward my “Image of STEM” vision with this work.

Ada Twist, Scientist

Ada Twist, Scientist | Netflix

Winner of the 2022 Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Preschool series, Ada Twist, Scientist centers on eight-year old Ada Twist and her two best friends, Rosie Revere and Iggy Peck, who are asking big questions and working together to solve problems and discover the truth about everything! Kerri Grant serves as showrunner, co-executive producer and story editor.  I served as a science consultant. A "Little Knatokie" character appears in season 4 modeled in my childhood likeness with my signature snazzy eyeglasses.


Eureka! | Disney Junior

Eureka is a young inventor who is way ahead of her time. Utilizing creative out-of-the-box thinking, she designs inventions and contraptions in the hopes of making the world a better place and moving her prehistoric community into a more modern era. I consulted on series development, highlighting core scientific and inclusion themes to incorporate in the series.

Inclusive STEM Content | PBS Digital Studios

Co-led a National Science Foundation funded, multi-sector project with PBS Digital studios. The core of the project focused on telling compelling science stories in ways that are more engaging and relevant to groups that have been historically underrepresented in STEM—specifically, women as well as Black and Hispanic people.  The project is an innovative research-practice model that identified, tested, and implemented science storytelling tactics on YouTube and other social media platforms. Notably, I introduced a novel approach of incorporating a storytelling hypothesis into the content development process and created an intentional science storytelling guide based on the project findings and insights.  

“There is power in proximity. Get close to the problem you feel drawn to. Change the narrative. Stay hopeful. Be willing to do uncomfortable things.”
