Kelly Mayes


I am a fourth-year student at the University of Georgia majoring in journalism and ecology with a minor in Spanish. At UGA, I have divided researching termites in an entomology laboratory and writing for the Odum School of Ecology, Gulfshore Business and UGA's newspaper, The Red and Black. In the future, I would like to continue working as a scientist and a science writer, finding new ways to tell stories about the natural world. When I'm not in the lab, or on assignment, you can find me inside reading or outside hiking.
