I cut my teeth as a student journalist at the University of Wisconsin, covering Madison’s 2011 collective bargaining protests and the subsequent recalls that roiled Wisconsin. I’ve since interviewed dozens of Wisconsin’s biggest political figures, including vice presidential candidate and Congressman Paul Ryan, Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke.
I’m a multi-platform reporter who breaks news online, follows in-depth in print, incessantly tweets, appears weekly on Milwaukee’s FOX6 TV news and chats on the airwaves monthly as a contributor to Milwaukee’s WUWM public radio station.
Outside the office, I’m a board member and mentorship committee chair with the Daily Cardinal Alumni Association, part of the Milwaukee Press Club’s young media committee and volunteer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness’ Racine County chapter.
Still a Milwaukee newcomer, I’m always exploring the city and looking for ways to get involved in the community. In my spare time, you’ll find me volunteering, forcing my friends to try my cooking, Netflix binge-watching and traveling whenever possible.
