I'm so grateful to be joining the 24/7 Now team as a reporter.

I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York.

I became interested in current events during my time at Williamsville East High School, where I started a social media initiative to raise awareness about international human rights violations. During my time at East, I also interned at the Academy for Human Rights and was a guest on two BBC World Service, “Over to You,” radio broadcasts.

I moved to Boston in 2016 to study journalism at Emerson College. As a student journalist, I covered a vast range of stories about racism, immigration, and domestic violence in the greater Boston area. I'm most proud of an investigative piece I worked on about undocumented victims of domestic violence being targeted by ICE Agents in Dorchester.

In 2018, I was a broadcast news intern at WKBW in my hometown, where I was mentored by investigative journalists and field reporters.

I spent time abroad as a RIAS Berlin Fellow in 2019 and learned about international politics, the Cold War, and journalism in Germany. I was also chosen to be a 2019 CBS Women in Media Fellow, where I attended the Gracies Leadership Awards, an event that celebrated the impact women have made in the media industry.

Besides chasing stories, I enjoy cooking international dishes and horseback riding.

Is there anything you wish journalists were covering in your community, but haven’t yet? Feel free to send me an email.
