I’m just a small-town girl in a journalist’s world, waking up bright and early every morning to find the best news to read and the most interesting stories to report.

My news and coffee addiction began freshman year of college as News Editor of Nova Southeastern University’s paper, The Current, and has transcended into a passion. The desire to use my written voice to make a difference drove me to various publications, including amNewYork, The Seminole Tribune, Rush Hour Daily, Elite Daily, and She’s Fit to Lead.
