I am a journalism major and biology minor at American University in Washington, D.C.
I am currently interning on the Metro Desk at the Washington Post covering everything local to DC. I spent this past summer interning with Bloomberg BNA on their corporate and transactional news desk and the spring interning with the Durango Herald as their Washington Correspondent. I am in my senior year of college, where I am working as a Resident Assistant.
I began my career in journalism as a staff writer, then Editor-in-Chief for Scot Scoop News, the online news publication for Carlmont High School. During my two years as Editor-in-Chief, Scot Scoop received the National Scholastic Press Association Online Pacemaker, the highest award for high school journalism, and has since gone on to receive that award again (and many others).
Since then, I have been a columnist for The Eagle, a staff writer for College Magazine, the founder of The Bottom Line and a freelance writer for Media File. I previously freelanced as a social media producer for The Hill, running Facebook Live streams and their Snapchat for events. I have also edited pieces published in The Washington Post, NBC News, The Hill and Huff Post.
Beyond my journalistic endeavors, I have also worked as a Program Associate and Conference Assistant for American University Housing and Residence Life, a key holder at The Walking Company and a marketing intern at Road Warrior, LLC. I serve as President of the AU chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and I am a member of SOC Ambassadors and ReJEWvenate.
