My name is Emilie Le Beau Lucchesi, PhD. I began my career as a journalist. I received my first assignment from the Chicago Tribune shortly after my twenty-fourth birthday. In the following decade, I wrote more than 800 stories for the esteemed paper.  My work has also run in the New York Times, Discover Magazine, and TheAtlantic.com.

In addition to my journalistic work, I also teach university courses and speak to professional groups, libraries, community organizations, and social clubs.
