Pinellas County Community Reporter

I'm an editorial assistant/community reporter eager to hear your story. I was born in Indiana, but have called Florida home for a little over a decade and am fascinated by the stories big and small that make up our state. I got my start in journalism at King High School's student newspaper, and joined the Times in 2016 after earning a master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. If you have a story you'd like us to know of, please reach out.
