I’m a journalist and reporter at WFYI in Indianapolis, where I cover local business and the economy through a data and equity lens. Previously, I was a podcast and daily talk show producer at Georgia Public Broadcasting in Atlanta, and I got my start in radio in 2018 as one of KALW's Audio Academy Fellows in San Francisco.
While I've now worked in media for more than three years, this was not my first – or even second! – career. Before embarking on a path in journalism, I interned at a biotechnology company in Seattle, worked as a financial analyst in Boston and spent a year in Brazil on a Fulbright scholarship.
For me, living, working and traveling in different regions and countries helped me realize the importance of local, community-powered journalism. Over time, it became clear to me that when people trusted their news sources, good things happened locally. As a journalist today, I work hard to create stories that reflect, engage and empower the people I serve.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, running and reading. I'm a certified advanced open water scuba diver and have cliff dived in Croatia, rappelled in Vietnam, and eaten hot sauce on a Brazilian side street that was so powerful I almost blacked out. After growing up in New Jersey, I'm grateful to have explored life in across the U.S. in the Midwest, Pacific Northwest, West Coast, and South.
