Alee Quick recently joined LRRD as our Creative
Director. Last spring she
graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with dual degrees in Spanish
and Journalism. Alee’s been a
student of Spanish conversation, reading, and writing for 14 years. She started off her undergrad studies
in journalism with an emphasis in magazine writing, but after a summer studying
in (and falling in love with) Spain, she added Spanish as another
She earned both degrees with cum laude
honors. While an undergrad, Alee
worked as a translator for the Center for the Study of Mathematics Curriculum
at the University of Missouri, as a reporter at the Columbia Missourian newspaper, and as a creative writing intern at Landis + Gyr.
Alee comes to LRRD as a writer after her
academic and professional training in news, feature and creative writing. As a photographer, Alee was trained
using 35mm film, and has spent many delightful hours processing film and
developing prints in a darkroom, but made a seamless jump to digital
Alee learned videography while working as a reporter for the Missourian’s website.
At Little River, she’ll be putting all of these
skills to work – in the two months she’s been here, she has revised the Em2
User Manual, edited and (almost) finished the
redesign of our new website, and taken tons of pictures for the manual, blog
and website. She’ll be doing many
things, including writing, making movies, photography, and graphic design.
Alee’s always been active in progressive politics and environmental
causes, and is thrilled to forward our environmental mission, especially our
commitment to education.
And we are thrilled to have her awesome skills, fantastic sense of
humor, musical talents, and much more!
