Allison Bohac is the assistant editor at Science News, which means she does a little bit of everything – fact checking and research, writing, news editing, magazine and website production and whatever other projects come her way. She spent her undergraduate years wading through Pennsylvania mountain streams to catch fish and frogs, which earned her a bachelor’s degree in zoology. After two years of managing aquatic systems for the laboratories at the National Institutes of Health, she went back to school for a master’s in science writing. She graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 2011, and joined the Science News staff a few months later. On the weekends, though, she still prefers to spend her time in the woods as a volunteer at the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in Lothian, Md.
