Hi, I'm a storyteller who has a love for words, people, culture, language and the details in between.

Fluent in the following:

  • Adobe Premiere
  • Final Cut Pro
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Audition
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe Lightroom
Religion, politics and entertainment are my cup of tea. I GET SUCH A THRILL WORKING ON BREAKING NEWS AND ABSOLUTELY LOVE WRITING PROFILES.


When I was a little kid I did everything a typical girl would do: sing songs, take ballet lessons, obsess over anything sparkly, twirl in dresses and--lastly--watch and read the news.

Little girls aren't supposed to obsess over global news and pop culture? Oh.

I loved reading up on current events and always stole TIME magazines from my dad. And whenever a major storm hit, my sisters and I would grab a camera and pretend to be news anchors and "weather girls"​ like it was second nature to us. We grew up singing, acting, and dancing. We were born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, but NYC was our second home.

I started my freshman year at Milligan College originally studying film; I wanted to further explore the entertainment industry, and I wanted to grow as an artist.

but after my first journalism class in college, I was hooked.

I started working for The Stampede, Milligan College’s news source as an anchor, reporter and graphic designer, later taking on the role of editor in chief in January 2016.

And in that role, I was able to lead and mentor 19 students.

I then interned for a semester at WJHL-TV News Channel 11 (CBS/ABC). There, I gathered information, conducted interviews, recorded standups, wrote copy for TV, and edited video footage.

During that semester, I also became a contributing writer for USA TODAY College, which led me to a collegiate correspondent position at USA TODAY. As a collegiate correspondent for USA TODAY, I worked on a variety of stories and incorporated media (video, audio and graphic design) into my work.

After my adventure with USA TODAY and USA TODAY College, I spent a summer in Washington, D.C., at the American Journalism Center.

While working in D.C., I had the chance to report from The Supreme Court, record a podcast at the State Department, attend the DNC in Philadelphia, cover each of the presidential candidates at rallies, conferences, conventions and hearings and cover stories related to Brexit, human trafficking and feminism.

And in the spring of 2017, I began an editorial internship at Backstage Magazine which is based in Brooklyn, New York.

At Backstage, I had the chance to cover awards shows, cover film festivals and interview performers in New York City.

But I'm not here to simply build my resumé.

I am passionate about sharing stories, and I want to bring that passion, energy and commitment to the workspace, wherever that workspace may be.

When I'm assigned a story or find a story I would like to work on, I pour my heart into it, keeping authenticity at the center.
