Biography

Journalist for hire based in LA. Most recently, I covered education on the East Coast in Annapolis. Prior to that, bylines were for Carroll County TImes and Durango Herald. I'm interested in data, government, tech, women in the workplace, and the business of journalism.

Why did you become a journalist?

I love translating complicated information and drilling it down into readable material. I also love people, which is a definite plus.

What advice can you offer to aspiring journalists?

Take as many internships as you possibly can.

When you're not at a computer, where are you most likely to be?

If I'm not by the computer, I'm most likely hiking, running, or doing some other outdoor activity that gets me away from my phone.
