I caught the news reporting bug years ago, and since then I’ve been preparing for a life and career in the newsroom and out in the field. I am passionate about my stories, I work well under pressure, and I love the profession.


At the University of Oregon, I pursued a major in Electronic Media along with a minor in Communication Studies while focusing on classes that would ground me in journalism and newsroom requirements, live studio production and time management. I worked as the executive producer of DuckU, a student produced campus show, and helped anchor, report, and operate weekly viewings. I also worked with Oregon News, a live 30-minute newscast produced solely by journalism students for which I also reported, anchored, and produced.


Beyond the classroom, I participated in multiple internships to experience the real world of news reporting including one with KATU’s AM Northwest in Portland. During the three months I spent there, I assisted in live television production, developed multimedia skills working with web content, and participated in writing scripts for producers. In addition, while studying abroad in London, I got the rare opportunity to intern with the European Travel Channel and edited various feature-based projects.


My interests do extend beyond the newsroom. I enjoy sports, traveling, dancing, and exploring the great outdoors of Oregon; rain or shine. I am currently working with a local author, compiling research and conducting interviews while I continue to search for a challenging position in my chosen profession. Thank you for visiting and feel free to contact me here.

Reporting is not just about being on TV; it's about compelling storytelling with video and words and connecting with the viewer. I want to influence the public, just as the public will influence me to tell their stories.
