Journalism has allowed me to better know those around me and, in doing so, better know myself. But it matters far beyond me. I know communities best care for themselves when they are informed. I know stories create understanding and connectedness. I know that witness holds power to account. That’s why I want to do this work. I covered the 2020 New Hampshire Presidential Primary, then misinformation and North Carolina politics during the general election. I’m thrilled to cover state and local politics here. When I’m not working, you’ll find me on the disc golf course, every museum around town, or running on the sidewalk listening to young adult audiobooks.
