Valerie Bentivegna holds a BSc in Bioengineering, a MSc in Nanotechnology, and a PhD in Life Sciences. While she has worked as a research scientist, she has also dabbled in science communication and education both professionally and in her extracurricular activities.
With her broad scientific background and experience working in startups, Valerie is perfectly equipped for her role as Science and Medical Writer. She enjoys diving deep into the science with an interdisciplinary lens, and translating complexity into informative and engaging messaging, often bringing in authenticity, personality and the occasional bit of humor.
Outside of writing, she enjoys working on various crafts and performing as a science comedian; she started “Geeky Comedy Seattle,” a space for nerdy creators to share their work through workshops, open mics, and variety shows.
