I'm so excited to be reporting for Dayton 24/7 Now!

I am from eastern Pennsylvania, but I went to college just a few hours away at Kent State University. I graduated in May 2023 with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Studies with a concentration in Theatre Management. While in college, I worked for a variety of student media outlets including A Magazine, the fashion magazine; KentWired, the digital newspaper; and TV2, the broadcast station.

I also got the opportunity to be a morning news intern for PHL17 and a podcast intern for On The Marc Media. This led to me working part-time as a marketing assistant for On The Marc Media during my senior year of college. I am extremely grateful for the experiences and skills I learned through these positions and over my four years at Kent State.

I love sharing community stories. Something that I think is so special about this job is that I am able to share what matters most to those of you watching. If you have something you want to share or a story you think deserves to be heard, please reach out to me because I would love to hear it.

And although I am fresh out of college, my friends and I often joke that I act a lot like a grandmother. In my free time, I love to bake, read, go to local farmer's markets, nurture my plants, and embroider. However, I also love a good hike or dance class.
