I am a Des Moines-based journalist currently reporting for the Iowa Center for Public Affairs Journalism. The non-profit organization collaborates with news organizations around Iowa to bring investigative projects to fruition.
I graduated from Iowa State University in May 2020 with majors in journalism, international studies and French. As as student, I worked at the Iowa State Daily as a police reporter, politics editors and managing editor. I spent a summer interning at the Northwest Herald in Illinois and two summers and half my senior year as the Des Moines Register's breaking news intern. I also worked for Pacifica News Service where I did editing and reporting on a 2020 election podcast.
With all these experiences, I've gained autonomy, news sense and a love for journalism.
