I found my passion for writing in sixth grade when I filled my first diary front to back. I recently finished my master’s degree at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism where I traveled to South Africa, reported out of Washington, D.C., and filled my knowledge tank with all things writing. I’m now a research assistant at Denver’s 5280 Magazine: I fact-check like crazy and report on Colorado stories. I also have a Pulitzer Center fellowship on the side, and several brilliant ideas brewing in my head — come late December, I’m actively seeking a full-time position.
A little bit of background: I grew up in a small farm town in south Jersey and moved to Melbourne, Australia, for six months in 2016 where I lived like a local and explored the entire east coast. Tampa, Florida, remained my home base for the past seven years, and now I inhibit Chicago (and absolutely love it, although I’m willing to move anywhere).
My laid back attitude and love for water, combined with my determined mindset and eager attitude, play into my quirky thoughts and exciting ideas. When I’m not reporting on a story, you can find me working out in a CrossFit gym or in a local coffee shop drinking espresso and reading Patti Smith.
