Community-Driven Multimedia Journalist

As a reporter, I seek to connect people and their stories with broader social and political conversations — from sexual harassment on public transportation to the realities of lead in Chicago’s drinking water. I aim to find new ways of using old tools to find, tell and share these stories — from newsletters and Facebook groups to online surveys, paper flyers and events.

I'm a graduate journalism student at DePaul University, the Editor-in-Chief of 14 East, and the graduate assistant for DePaul's Center for Journalism Integrity & Excellence
