- COMPASS Points Blog, American Society of Cell Biology

As a founding member of ASCB's Committee for Postdocs and Students (COMPASS), I was central in the initiation of the COMPASS Points Blog, a weekly blog that discusses topics related to science education, policy, and other topics that impact graduate students and postdocs. As a co-chair (2014) and then chair (2015) of the Communications subcommittee responsible for the blog, I expanded the reach of the blog by organizing an annual science writing contest, as well as started a collaborative interaction with the National Postdoc Association through which their members contributed articles as well as advertised the blog, increasing our readership. My duties with regards the blog have been to recruit authors, edit articles, maintain the continuous, weekly publication of the blog, contributing articles, and increasing the readership and reach of the blog through social media and direct contacts.
