Becky Harlan is a visual and engagement editor for NPR's Life Kit.
Previously, she served as a producer on NPR's video team, creating content for series "Maddie About Science"; explainers covering everything from the impact of green roofs in New York City to food deserts in Washington, D.C.; and interview-based videos that create space for individuals to share their own experience on topics like treaty relations between the U.S. and Native Nations, American Sign Language, menstruation and childbirth with complications.
Before she came to NPR in 2016, Harlan was an associate photo editor at National Geographic, where she worked as an editor and writer for its photography blog and contributed to the food blog, science blog and photo community "Your Shot" as a producer and picture editor. She also worked as the video intern for NPR Music in the fall of 2013, where she filmed and edited videos for Tiny Desk Concerts and field recordings, and as a graduate intern at the Smithsonian American Art Museum where she made trailers for exhibitions and edited artist interviews.
Harlan has an MA in New Media Photojournalism from the Corcoran College of Art and Design and a BA in Art History from Furman University.
