I’ve been writing stories since I was in grade school, when I started my own neighborhood newspaper (written by hand and distributed mostly to members of my family).
I haven’t stopped since. From my days editing my high school newspaper to my new role as a digital journalist at ABC2 News, it’s been an adventure! No two days are alike.
After graduating from The Ohio State University, I spent more than a decade writing for newspapers in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Most recently, I worked for The Capital in Annapolis, covering beats including Anne Arundel County government, education and business. I’m excited for the opportunity to cover a variety of topics and tell in-depth stories that interest and inform you.
On a personal note, I grew up in the Pittsburgh suburbs (go Steelers, Pens and Pirates!) but I’m happy to call Maryland my adopted home despite the sports rivalries. When I’m not reporting and writing, I enjoy eating chocolate and trying new craft beers, as well as running and Zumba to stay in shape.
