Athena E. Copenhaver—Contributing Editor

Athena E. Copenhaver is a writer, editor, science communicator, and certified climate interpreter currently earning her keep in the non-profit sector. She has ghostwritten book chapters about cities plagued by factory farming, air pollution, and automobile traffic, and she has written about migrating white sharks, threatened sea otters, and depleted Pacific bluefin tuna. In recent years she’s been exploring how best to contribute to the global transition toward compassion and justice for all people, animals, and the living world. This endeavor appears to coincide with her foray into fiction, and she hopes to publish her first novel later this year. She holds degrees in English and Environmental Studies from Santa Clara University, and in 2009, she earned her Master of Art in Culture and Modernity from the University of East Anglia in England. Born in Bellevue, Washington, Athena was raised with her two younger sisters on the Central Coast of California and has lived in Carmel for most of her life.
