Marlee Ellison

Marlee Ellison is a junior at the University of Missouri in Columbia studying arts and culture magazine journalism. She is a current music blogger at Vox Magazine and a former reporter for the Columbia Missourian. 

She’s specifically interested in nutrition and food science in relation to income inequality and America’s obesity crisis. She wonders what we can do as a society to increase access to healthy, sustainable foods regardless of income levels. She strongly believes that a long-term healthy diet is the greatest gift for our minds and bodies, and that everyone deserves to eat nourishing food.

As her father works internationally, she has lived in Sweden, America and Malaysia, her adopted home country. Her parents live in China, giving her the opportunity to travel and gain a global perspective. This fostered her love for science and the environment.

On balmy spring weekends you can find her hiking at Rock Bridge Memorial State Park and trying to identify wild mushrooms. Besides this, she’s pretty stoked that cats exist.

She is taking Science, Health and Environmental Writing in the Spring 2016 semester.
