I’m a multimedia reporter and recent master's graduate from American University with newsroom experience covering policy and politics in Washington.
As a D.C. intern primarily working on Capitol Hill for The Dallas Morning News, I've had the chance to cover historical moments like the passage of The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, the reversal of Roe v. Wade and the speaker of the House elections. On top of covering daily news, I've pitched and executed stories that go deeper into policies and the impact they will have on North Texans.
I got my first taste for political reporting while working in a variety of positions at the College Heights Herald and Kentucky newspapers, where I had the opportunity to cover state politics. My knowledge and passion for this beat expanded through the 2020 POLITICO Journalism Institute where I learned from D.C. reporters and editors.
I’m comfortable in fast-paced environments and can produce accurate stories on complex issues under strict deadlines. While at DMN and as a student in the AU, Washington Post practicum, I’ve also developed investigative research skills and strive to produce stories with depth and impact.
