I’m an Illinois transplant who’s fallen for her beer and cheese-loving adopted home in the great state of Wisconsin. From the politics to the people, I can’t imagine a better college experience or better place to start my career as a reporter, a job I’ve aspired to since the second grade.
I cut my teeth covering the collective bargaining protests and subsequent recalls that roiled Wisconsin, and have since developed a taste for local politics, too. Other topics of interest include non-profits, mental illness, public transportation, health care, election law, campaign finance and more.
Previously, I’ve interned &/or freelanced for…
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Isthmus, Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, Wispolitics, Wisconsin Public Television, WORT 89.9 community radio station, The Washington Courier
Graduate: University of Wisconsin-Madison, Class of 2012

Aspirations: Eventually work as an editor and journalism teacher, push the boundaries to integrate photo, video and text to best tell stories of the future
Other interests: Love learning, cooking and great books. Fueled by coffee, craft beer, sarcasm and smiles.
