Jennifer Cline brings more than 20 years of professional experience writing and speaking about science to her work with Northwestern University, where she teaches courses on science communication. In addition to the students she coaches in that capacity, other clients include scientists and business leaders from pharmaceutical and biotech companies, as well as their academic partners; staff and volunteers from foundations and associations; and government officials involved in science and health care policy. Still, her favorite science job remains the very first one she ever had, when she served as a National Park Ranger for several seasons. She still has her hat.
