Fact checking

Need a professional fact checker? Let me help you with that. I'll find that obscure primary document, use care in reconnecting with your sources, and leverage my science background to delve into the nitty gritty details of any research you cite. 


I've fact checked for publications like Scientific American, Knowable, High Country News, Pacific Standard, Cancer Today, and bioGraphic.


I also work with book authors and publishers. Most recently, I've had the pleasure of fact-checking Sandy Allen's A Kind of Mirraculas Paradise, Alice Robb's Why We Dream, Cabin Porn: Inside, and Eva Holland's forthcoming Nerve.

In conversation with author Leonard Mlodinow at a Seattle Town Hall event.

A jane of all trades

I'm also available for:

  • editing: I help book authors develop and edit manuscripts.

  • research: I work with publications and organizations on fact-finding missions

  • writing consulting / coaching: I've worked with scientists and writers to develop their story pitches. (Some have ended up in publications like The Atlantic and WIRED!)

  • public speaking: as a former science communicator, I've given dozens of public talks and presentations; in my journalistic work, I've been a guest on several radio shows and hosted live events.
