I have more than 11 years of print and online journalism experience and got my start as a reporter covering Takoma Park and Silver Spring. I've also worked as a columnist and editor. A native of the D.C. area, I earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in kinesiology from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2001 and a master’s degree in interactive journalism from American University in 2010. I work with a fantastic group of reporters, editors and photographers committed to quality story-telling both in print and online.
