Science Communication Expert & Earthquake Geologist
I started my career as a professional actress but changed gears after experiencing a big earthquake. Shortly after that event I started working at the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program in Pasadena, CA as the Outreach and Education Coordinator, I but really wanted to delve into the science of earthquakes so after 6 years at the USGS I went back to school and earned an MSc. and PhD in Geology.
During my time at the USGS, I saw how critical science communication is to the public, policymakers and other stakeholders, and my combination of theatre skills and science knowledge made me well-suited to take on roles in science communication. Since then, I've worked in communications roles at NASA, IRIS, EarthScope and beyond. In 2008 I founded the company SpaceFace Social Media Managing and Consulting, and in 2023 I expanded the business and changed the name to Dr. Wendy Rocks, LLC.
