I have been local government and politics reporter for the Ames Tribune since August 2020 with bylines in the Des Moines Register, USA Today and other papers in the network.
I graduated from Iowa State University in May 2020 in journalism, international studies and French. As as student, I worked at the Iowa State Daily as a police reporter, politics editor and managing editor.
As an undergrad, I interned at the Northwest Herald, the Des Moines Register and the Iowa Center for Public Affairs Reporting. I also worked for KHOI in Ames and Pacifica News Service editing and reporting on a 2020 election podcast.
I have experience as a breaking news reporter, listening to police scanners and running to crime scene, and beat coverage, staying on top of daily news and writing enterprise pieces.
