Position at The Enquirer: Breaking news reporter 

Why I became a journalist

I was always going to be a writer. I wasn’t sure if it was a poet, playwright or journalist, but I’ve never really considered being anything else. I tried journalism for the first time in sixth grade. Some of the high schoolers took me under their wing and let me help edit the newspaper during lunch. It was so cool. It wasn’t until college that I really fell in love with journalism though. I think it is everything I love: writing, talking to people and finding about absolutely everything I’m curious about.

What I like best about my job

I love so many things. It makes me so happy to hear that a restaurant or bar is packed after a profile we did. But it is also the best feeling in the world when someone reaches out to me or trusts me with their story. 

A story I worked on that has had a lasting impact on me

At the beginning of the pandemic, former Enquirer reporter Max Londberg and I interviewed some students who were being forced out of student housing with little notice. So many people reached out, offering money, furniture, their own homes and time to make sure that these students had somewhere to go. I loved seeing how much the community stepped up.
