Jenessa is a science writer living in Washington, D.C. She grew up in Oregon and previously passed her time on research ships as an oceanographer.


For five years, she wrote about climate change and earth science for the science news magazine Eos, published by the American Geophysical Union. As a jack of all trades for Planet Earth, her articles covered ocean pollution, climate solutions, academic workplace harassment, and more. Over the years, the Association Media and Publishing has awarded three of her stories prizes in the magazine features category.

She now works as a senior consultant in science writing for a scientific government agency focused on energy through Booz Allen Hamilton. She's fascinated by energy technologies and the hunt for the next big idea.

Outside the office, she's planning a wedding and finally reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
