Micheala Sosby

storyteller + strategist

I work in the overlap of science and story. The work I do is powered by accessibility and a focus on the audience. I connect people to groundbreaking science that's changing the world and develop business models that ensures science communication remains sustainable. Social media, code and my ears are my favorite tools.
