Philanthropy and the arts inspired my four-year reporting stint for The Wall Street Journal’s Greater New York section. Nicknamed “Rupert Murdoch’s illegitimate granddaughter” by the illustrious Gay Talese, for not only my freelance status, but also my ambition. During my time here, you could find me pitching story ideas, beating deadlines, and chasing down leads. As a storyteller, I am most gratified by shining a light on our community’s everyday heroes – those who often make the greatest impact with the most modest contributions.
Methodical by nature, I’ve juggled bookkeeping, event coordination, and meeting facilitation as part o a genius team of software developers for the past five years—in addition to my journalism work. I discovered an appreciation for collaboration and camaraderie you just don’t find covering a beat. Journalism is my first love, but certainly not my last. I dream of being on the board of a community-driven, sustainable news outlet, but until then I want to research sustainable business models for journalism and contribute my administrative savvy to top-notch teams.
In my free time, I volunteer with Therapy Dogs of Boulder County to share my canine companion with those who could use a little extra puppy love in their day. You can also find me practicing Iyengar Yoga, riding my bike, and hiking.
