I’m proud to start my career as an All Media Journalist covering the Clark, Champaign and Logan county communities. I was born and raised in Maryland but I’m learning all the great things the Miami Valley has to offer. I earned a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Maryland, College Park in May 2015. As a student I had the amazing opportunity to intern at Cox Media Group’s Washington D.C. Bureau. There I had the chance to cover stories at the White House and the Capitol, which fueled my love of political journalism. In my spare time you can find me cooking, practicing yoga or enjoying the outdoors. I’m a huge Maryland Terps fan (especially basketball) and love to watch my team whenever I get the chance.
