Laura Evancich (editorial intern for Spring 2006) is a 2004 graduate of the University of Colorado, Boulder, and has a B.A. in english literature and studio arts photography. In Colorado, she did not spend her free time skiing but fly-fishing and rock climbing instead. She has worked as a rock-climbing instructor, a leader of wilderness survival expeditions, and a volunteer crisis counselor and trainer.
During the internship, she enjoyed the challenge of science writing and the thrill of working in close contact with the action at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Laura hopes to fuse her writing, digital media, and photography skills into a career in publishing.
After the internship, she did a stint as a publishing production assistant--copyediting, color-correcting images, photographing events, and working with the publishing staff--at the Boston Bar Association. She now works as a Development Communications Coordinator at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.
