welcome

I am a digital reporter and storyteller based in Ocala, Florida, horse capital of the world. I cover courts and Marion County for the Ocala Star-Banner.

Originally from the Washington, D.C., area (Silver Spring, Maryland, to be exact), I decided to move 1,000 miles to attend the Missouri School of Journalism.

I received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the school in 2016. I also received a bachelor’s degree in environmental science and a minor in Luso-Brazilian studies from Ol’ Missouri.

I have a penchant for environmental, health, science and public safety reporting. I’ve covered these topics and more for The Maneater, University of Missouri’s school newspaper, The Montgomery County (Maryland) Gazette, the Columbia Missourian, Greenability Magazine, the Columbia Daily Tribune and EcoWatch.com. My work has also been published in The Washington Post.

Before college, I spent most of my life living overseas: Tunis, Tunisia; Casablanca, Morocco; Nassau, the Bahamas; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I’ve also studied abroad in Costa Rica and Thailand.

When I’m not reporting I’m either watching gymnastics YouTube videos (I was a competitive gymnast for 10 years), reading or researching zero-waste lifestyles and hacks.
