Science doesn’t just happen in a lab. We communicate about the ways communities, businesses and policy makers are using science to inform decisions and build a better world.
Our team produces articles and newsletters for the Thriving Earth Exchange of the American Geophysical Union and AGU’s science news publication, Eos. By sharing these stories, we hope to inspire more communities and scientists to advance solutions to pressing environmental problems.
We also work with experts at the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise to develop articles that bring the latest economic research to bear on current policy and workforce debates. These articles have examined critical issues such as the economic fallout of COVID-19, economic inequality, health care and racial inequities. Continue reading
Anne developed the content for this role-playing game about disaster resilience for the Koshland Science Museum. It won a Gold Medal in the International Serious Play Awards when it was first released in 2015. The game is now in its third edition and has been played by community groups and schools around the world.
The game is designed to give participants a taste of what it takes to build community resilience in the face of disaster. Players work together to make decisions and solve problems during an engaging, fast-paced disaster simulation. Continue reading

Episodes feature interviews with experts from around the world and cover high-impact environmental issues such as climate change, chemical exposures, children’s health and more.
Anne developed this 36-page booklet for the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. It is intended for policy makers, researchers and other stakeholders and presents an overview of the ways climate-related changes in the Arctic impact us all. Continue reading
Sometimes you need more than words to get your message across.
In this project done while Anne was a Communications Officer at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, Anne worked with leading researchers and public outreach organizations to determine the best channel and format for reaching kids and gardeners with key messages about the value of pollinators.
The result was an innovative interactive wheel. Measuring about 10” wide, the wheel provides a fun and engaging way to learn about nature’s pollinators and get tips on how to plant a pollinator-friendly garden. Continue reading
Anne oversaw development of this extensive five-booklet series on ocean science and stewardship while a Communications Officer at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. She was lead writer for the booklets, conducted image research and oversaw the development of graphics, and worked closely with expert reviewers to ensure consistency and accuracy of the content.
Each booklet draws from numerous expert reports from the National Research Council and underwent an extensive review process involving multiple scientific experts and other stakeholders. Continue reading
In support of a major web overhaul for the website of Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment, our team consulted on information architecture, created page templates for content and layout, and revitalized or created dozens of web pages. Continue reading
Anne wrote this 32-page educational booklet while a Communications Officer at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. It is intended for a lay audience and summarizes anticipated impacts of climate change on ecosystems in seven regions of the United States.
In addition to content creation, she oversaw the booklet’s design, printing and dissemination campaign. To develop the booklet, Anne drew from source material in National Research Council reports and interviewed numerous scientists and other stakeholders to distill key messages. Continue reading
While a Communications Officer at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, Anne developed this suite of products as part of a broad outreach strategy focused on emerging discoveries about the amazing ways microbes benefit us and the planet. Each product was designed to communicate to a specific audience—ranging from middle school students to college professors to scientists—to deliver key messages to the right people in the right way.
Ever think about where your tap water comes from? You’ll see this critical resource in a new way once you know the full story.
Anne wrote the content for this 28-page booklet for the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. She also conducted image research, interfaced with expert reviewers to ensure the booklet accurately reflected key science and policy messages from National Research Council reports, and adapted the booklet’s content into an online resource.
