I received an M.Sc. in Neuroscience from University College Cork, studying the way that gut-microbial metabolites affected the brain.
Along the way, I learned how to tell exciting stories about science through presentations, stand-up comedy and science communication competitions. I became the winner of a national competition called FameLab by explaining the role of the microbiome in a three minute video.
Currently, I am a staff journalist for Being Patient and has also been published across The Daily Beast, Futurism, Time Health magazine, Health magazine, Massive Science and elsewhere.
I am also the co-founder of Resolvve, a mental health company providing accessible therapy services for students in Canada.
I’m a journalist for Being Patient where I regularly pitch stories about Alzheimer’s, brain health, and dementia. This involves breaking down controversies and drug development, the latest research, and trends for a lay audience. I am also in charge of writing and sending out Alzheimer’s-themed newsletters for clients.
Helped proofread and edit an online course on gastrointestinal health. I also leveraged my microbiome knowledge to develop case studies within the course modules.
I helped with the production and organization of microbiome educational content and wrote copy for Instagram campaigns.
