Why I became a journalist

It was what I wanted to be when I was a kid. My dad is a baseball columnist for USA TODAY. My mom was a copy editor for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the Los Angeles Times before she started her sports photography business. I went with my mom to the Star Tribune’s office a couple of times and I thought it was the coolest place. 

What I like best about my job

Baseball was always my favorite sport, so I’m fortunate to work in a field that I’m passionate about. As my grandfather often tells me, “You get paid to do what a lot of people would pay to do.” 

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

I wrote a story about former Reds pitcher, and now broadcaster, Danny Graves last year. He was very open about his battle with depression as a player and a lot of the tough moments in his life. It was incredible how honest he was about everything, but it’s a good reminder that athletes (and people in all fields) can be going through tough battles beneath the surface.
