About Me

WWII Memorial in D.C.

Hello there! My name is Emmalee Mauldin and I’m glad you’re here!

I am a 20-something-year-old science journalist and communicator who loves traveling and photography. I recently graduated from the University of Arizona, located in Tucson, Ariz., majoring in journalism and minoring in environmental studies. I currently reside in Houston, Texas, and work at NASA’s Johnson Space Center as a Social Media Specialist in the Human Research Program. I have a hodge-podge of passions so if you’re like me and you enjoy a little bit of everything, then you and I will get along very well!

Growing up in the southwest, I have a passion for hiking, the environment, and conservation. I absolutely love going on backpacking trips and visiting our nation’s national parks. The conservation of water, energy, natural resources, and our planet’s wildlife is vitally important to me and I love learning about new ways to be more environmentally-conscious, so let me know if you have any tips or tricks!

In college, I completed two science communications internships at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, and my third and fourth NASA internships at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. During those internships, I was a social media and science communications intern for the Hubble Space Telescope at Goddard – and I absolutely loved my internship! I will continue to post more information about NASA and NASA internships, if you’re interested — so stay tuned!

Along with my passion for nature and space, I love make-up, working out, the arts, and reading. Visit my “Life” page for information on life with pets, what conservation is to me, or musical productions. I may on occasion talk about living with depression or anxiety as a young adult in today’s society, or the absolute joy of having a brother who is 14 years younger than me.

Like I said — I am a hodge-podge of interests! I hope that you’ll stick with me through this journey called life and thank you for your support. It means more than I could ever describe.
