Nearing graduation from The University of Montana with a BFA in painting in 2011, Graslie's relationship with science began as an internship with The University of Montana Zoological Museum during her senior year. What started off as a means to practice scientific illustration gradually developed into a love of skeletal preparation and an interest in the inner workings of natural history museums. In January of 2013, with the help of YouTube educator Hank Green, Graslie launched a YouTube channel about science museums and research collections. 'The Brain Scoop' aims to share the wonderful inner and outer workings of natural history museums by discussing all aspects of science, biology, and the joys of discovery. That July, Graslie moved to The Field Museum and became their first-ever Chief Curiosity Correspondent, where she uses a variety of new media to share the Field's stories with passionate learners from all over the world.
