I currently work as a digital storyteller at Samaritan, a Seattle-based startup that shares the stories of people on the streets and lets people cashlessly donate through an app.
I previously worked as a breaking news reporter and social media curator at The Hill in Washington, D.C., where I covered a variety of different topics including the Russia investigation and President Donald Trump’s policy proposals.
I also gained experience reporting on social services through my work at The Frederick News-Post, a daily newspaper located about an hour outside of Washington, D.C. At the News-Post, I reported on issues relating to homelessness, affordable housing and mental health.
I graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University where I studied journalism and political science. At Northwestern, I was a member of The Daily Northwestern, Northwestern’s student newspaper. I worked as Summer Editor, Managing Editor, Campus Editor and Design Editor.
I also completed an internship at The Miami Herald, where I covered breaking news, community events, crime stories, business stories and features. During my 11-week internship, I wrote nearly 90 stories.
Through my reporting experience, I have gained experience covering a variety of different stories — features, breaking news, crime, business and politics. I also have experience in coding and design.
