I am the founder of Capital Science Communicators (CapSciComm), a network for greater Sacramento students and professionals in journalism, public relations, creative, policy, outreach, and research. Since 2013, we have cultivated a vibrant regional community: local science cafés have proliferated from one to four active programs, and we continue to foster career advancement through our networking events, jobs listserv, and Twitter engagement.
