Hi! I’m Susan, a journalist who loves ramen, mountains, and garage sales. For the past decade, I’ve followed my curiosity all over the world, writing about everything from snail mail to Lunchables to holotropic breathing. But mostly, I’ve focused on climate change and sustainability — because, really, what bigger story is there?

In 2022, I joined The New York Times as a reporting fellow for Headway. In this role, I’ve been able to report on solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. For the second year of my Headway fellowship, I am thrilled to be embedded at High Country News, a nonprofit magazine that’s covered environmental and social justice issues in the Western U.S. for more than 50 years.
