Avory Brookins

Avory joined us from Wisconsin Public Radio where she worked as a general assignment reporter. Previously, she did some science and community reporting for Philadelphia's public radio station, WHYY. Avory is a Philadelphia native and is looking forward to being back on the East Coast to start her next adventure.   

"I'm completely new to Rhode Island, so I'm really excited for this job because I'll be learning and reporting on Rhode Island's environmental issues at the same time. Plus, it's great knowing that I'll be able to serve as an environmental resource for Rhode Island Public Radio's listeners." 

Avory graduated from Temple University in 2016 with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism.
