About Kristy

Kristy has spent a decade pursuing science and the unknown. She has been a podcast host for Science Magazine, covered all-female expeditions to Antarctica, hitchhiked and ice-climbed in Hyalite Canyon, lived in the desert in an RV, slept in the back of a van, moderated a conference on the sustainability of cell-based seafood, climbed in Yosemite and the Dolomites, road tripped across the United States, lived in Ukraine for two months, trekked forests in search of albino redwood trees, was invited as a journalism fellow to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute during a storm that ripped through town… and now she’s writing two books!

Her primary reporting interests include wildlife biology, environmental science, natural resource conflicts, and psychology. She has two degrees in Journalism and Neuroscience.
