Allison (Ally) Frick loves multimedia storytelling. The more platforms available to make a story come to life, the better. She comes to the ASBMB from WUSA9, the local CBS affiliate in Washington, D.C., where she produced web and on-air content for USA Today high school sports. She also worked in the newsroom during breaking news events, weather emergencies and elections. Her alma mater, the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism, has a special place in her heart. It’s where she reported on the Chesapeake Bay and met a mentor who taught her not to be afraid to take a leap of faith when it comes to reporting on a new subject. Whether it’s local news, sports or science, it’s all about how you tell the story — and that’s something to be excited about.
