Although I am from the smallest state, I knew at a young age that I wanted to do big things and contribute to my community! Raised in Cumberland, Rhode Island, my parents always encouraged me to follow my dreams and pursue my passion for the performing arts. From years of dance lessons and vocal performances, I realized before college that what I loved most about performing was connecting with people and telling a story, whether that was through a song or a monologue. In high school I became involved with my school’s online newspaper and it was from that moment on that I became interested in pursuing a career in broadcast journalism.
In 2015 I graduated from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications where I majored in Broadcast Journalism. I contributed to the campus’ TV news station, co-hosted a morning radio show on one of the campus’ radio stations, and developed news stories for WAER, a Syracuse public radio station. During my undergraduate career I also completed several newsroom internships with WPRI 12 in Providence, RI, New England Cable News in Newton, MA, and WBNG-TV in Binghamton, NY. In college I saved some time to root for the Syracuse sports teams (Go Orange!) and am a fan of the New England Patriots and Red Sox!
Outside of journalism I enjoy singing, dancing, traveling, listening to all types of music, and cooking. There is so much beauty in North Dakota that I am excited to explore the state more by telling your stories. If you have a story idea you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message on my Facebook page. If you ever see me out and about, please say hello!
