I’m a local government report for the Idaho Statesman. I cover a variety of beats, including Boise city government and enterprising topics important to Idaho readers. In this job and in past roles, I resligh in the opportunity to cover both breaking hyperlocal and national news in a way that contextualizes it for readers.
In May 2018, I graduated with degrees in journalism and political science with a minor in sociology from Ohio University. While at school, I worked as the digital managing editor for The Post. I also served on the national board for the Society of Professional Journalists for a year beginning in Sept. 2017. My past journalistic experience includes two Dow Jones News Fund internships — a data and investigations position with McClatchy's D.C. bureau and an internship with The Denver Post's web production team. I've also worked as the assistant managing editor for The Post and the campus president of the Society of Professional Journalists.
My passions include politics and digital journalism. I particularly enjoy writing document-driven longform stories and anything about politics (although to this day, one of my favorite articles of all time was this one about Mister Rogers).
