Connect With Me


I wanted to be a writer from the time I was eight-years-old when I first started writing stories about anything that popped into my head. When I got to college, I fell in love with journalism. I figured out that I wanted to give people a platform for their stories, and give a voice to those who are often overlooked in our communities. As a reporter, I want to make that happen every day.

I graduated from Emerson College in Boston in December 2015 Magna cum laude with a BS in Journalism. During my time at Emerson, I was an anchor and reporter for the AP award-winning radio station WERS , and a political correspondent and reporter for the AP award-winning news show EIV News at 9. During college, I also interned in Boston with Somerville Neighborhood News, WBUR- FM, and WFXT-TV Fox, in Philadelphia with the Associated Press, and in Washington, D.C. with NBC Washington News 4.

I come from Fox News Channel in New York City where I worked as a production assistant at the Media Desk. I am from Newark, New Jersey, and I'm a Jersey girl at heart- but I am more than ready to become a Rough Rider and learn more about this beautiful state! I am so grateful for the kindness and positive vibes I've received from the Dickinson community. If you see me on the street, say hi, and if you have any story ideas, problems, or issues to discuss, feel free to contact me at!
