Behind the Words


I am a master’s student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. I am a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation fellow for the Southwest Health Reporting Initiative, focusing on health disparities in underserved communities across the Southwest. Originally from Orono, Maine, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in cognitive science and a minor in French from the University of Connecticut where I co-founded the school’s first student-run science journalism publication, STEMTalk Magazine. I interned at the science communication nonprofit SciLine and for PBS’s series “NOVA.” Recently, I reported on immigration issues in Panama City, Panama and reported remotely on juvenile justice in the United States.
