Melissa Mayer

Melissa Mayer is a science writer, former science teacher, and crisis counselor. She took her first cell biology class at Trinity University on a bet. In a fold-up desk surrounded by pre-med students who had no doubt taken the prerequisites, she unexpectedly fell hard and fast for biology – and discovered a knack for writing about science. After a decade in the classroom, Melissa now covers the biotech and biomedical spaces as well as the intersection of science and social issues for readers ranging from middle school students to industry professionals. She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her wife, kids, and way too many animals.
