Tru recently graduated from Emory University with a BS in Neuroscience & Behavioral Biology and a BA in Computer Science. Her liberal arts education has provided her with a firm foundation in writing and research, and her STEM focus equips her with the knowledge base to clearly and accurately explain a wide variety of scientific and technical topics.

A voracious reader since childhood, Tru enjoys integrating the complexity of the sciences with the beauty of the written word. As a psychology research assistant, she studied learning in bilingual children and wrote compelling stories in both English and Spanish to be used as experimental stimuli. As a business analyst intern at Turner Broadcasting, she developed training materials to teach a non-technical audience how to use a new internal web application. As a peer tutor in Chemistry, Neurobiology, Math, and Spanish, Tru learned to explain complex concepts in a way that is clear, concise, and easy to remember.

Tru is currently spending her gap year gaining research experience as she prepares to apply to post-graduate programs in behavioral neuroscience. She is also working in curriculum development at a start-up that aims to improve the financial literacy of high school students by developing high quality and engaging E-learning materials. She is an avid trail runner, an active volunteer at her local animal shelter, and an enthusiastic supporter of local businesses. Tru understands the importance of developing quality content on demand, and enjoys sharing her writing in order to contribute to the learning and growth of others.
