Telling truth to power is what motivates me as a journalist.
I am a recent graduate of American University with my Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. I am reporter with Bloomberg Law covering Medicare. I am also a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors and the Online News Association.
During college, I spent nine months as an intern on the Metro Desk at The Washington Post, a summer interning with Bloomberg BNA on their corporate and transactional news desk and a semester interning with The Durango Herald as their Washington Correspondent.
During college, I was also a freelance writer for Media File and a freelance social media producer for The Hill, running Facebook Live streams and their Snapchat. I have also edited pieces published in The Washington Post, NBC News, The Hill and Huff Post.
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).
