About Me I am a freelance environmental, health and science writer who worked for New Jersey newspapers for nearly 35 years. I began covering environmental issues for the Asbury Park Press in 1985 and joined the Projects/Investigations Team in 2008. Most recently, I was the environmental and severe weather reporter. A finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Public Service, I have contributed to three books: Sandy: Devastation and Rebirth at the Jersey Shore (2013), the book's anniversary edition (2013) and 125 Years at The Jersey Shore (2005). In the 1980s, I took graduate-level courses in environmental health, environmental risk assessment and public health.
