I am a journalist based in Washington, D.C.
I currently report on K-12 education for EdSurge, a digital media publication. I’ve also reported for Inside Higher Ed, HuffPost and The Columbus Dispatch. My work has been picked up by the Associated Press and featured in over 60 newspapers nationwide, including The San Francisco Chronicle, The Houston Chronicle and The San Antonio Express-News.
My primary interests include women and gender issues, human rights, and the developing world, but I've also written about education, technology, cybersecurity, medicine, health, crime and government. Really, I am comfortable covering almost any beat — I just like to talk to people about the things that matter to them most.
I’m good at taking something complex or technical — like a policy, lawsuit, procedure or emerging trend — and writing about it in a way that is simplified, digestible and engaging for a wide audience. I have a knack for humanizing broad societal issues and developments through the individuals featured in my stories. But I can also turn around breaking news in minutes and file stories on the fly.
I grew up in Nashville, Tenn., and attended college at Miami University in Ohio, where I earned degrees in journalism and international studies. I am quirky, sarcastic and usually laughing at myself. Reach out and introduce yourself.
