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 aspiring science journalist 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 am seeking employment in science communications. 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!

I have 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. I was an intern in social media and science communications for the Hubble Space Telescope at Goddard and I absolutely loved my internship! I will continue to post more information about NASA, NASA internships, and Hubble — 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 my favorite books, make-up products 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.
