Bethany first came to Northwestern in 2002 to study Theatre and English (Writing in Poetry). After graduating with her B.S. in Communications in 2006, she spent four years performing on various Chicago stages including the Goodman Theatre, The American Theater Company and Donny’s Skybox at The Second City.
Bethany also studied and performed improvisation at The Second City, and iO Chicago, where she performs in “Storytown,” an improvised musical fairytale for kids.
Her love of storytelling brought her back to Northwestern, this time to the Medill School of Journalism, where she recently completed her Masters of Science in Journalism with a concentration in magazine writing and editing. Bethany spent the last three months of the program in London where she interned at the Ecologist, an online environmental magazine, as part of Medill's Global Residency Program.
Bethany is thrilled to be back at Northwestern as Science in Society's Publications Editor.
