IMG_0629As a 23-year-old reporter, I am currently studying Public Affairs Reporting for my Master’s degree at the University of Illinois in Springfield.

I received my undergraduate degree in News Editorial Journalism from Illinois State University where I served as the News Editor of the school newspaper my senior year. I also held leadership positions within the School of Communication where I refined my journalism and public relations skills.

Following my graduation from Illinois State I began an internship with the Chicago Sun-Times. Working with the Editorial Board, I was able to publish and assist on a handful of pieces before leaving for graduate school. A select few of these pieces are available on this site.
