Jenner Junghans

Science Writer


Jenner Junghans is a science writer and environmental journalist based in Northern California. Over the past 18 years, she’s written for various publications and outlets across print, web and radio, and has more than 10 years of experience as a senior writer and editor in corporate communications for a healthcare company. Additionally, she’s held various editorial positions for a business publication.

Her interests as a journalist include environmental health and stewardship, agriculture and food systems, and wildlife and conservation. Jenner’s favorite question is still: Why? She is unabashedly curious, has an equally analytical and creative mind, and loves all things science — traits she uses to produce thorough, thoughtful writing that is clear, accurate and memorable.

She holds a bachelor of science in biological sciences and an associate of science in horticulture, and completed a two-year certificate program in creative writing through UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education.

When she’s not writing or thinking about writing, some of her favorite pursuits include birding, marveling at how small she is in the presence of the natural world and enjoying vegan food.
