I spent my time in college discovering everything I could about digital journalism and audience engagement. I graduated from the University of Iowa in May 2022 and started at the Times not long after. I grew up in Iowa and I’m eager to escape the Midwest winters in the Florida sunshine. I love coffee (I’m always looking for cafe recommendations), running, hiking and animals. I have a bad habit of buying more books than I could possibly read and then proceeding to binge-watch a show. When I’m not posting/curating content for the Times social platforms I can be found curled up with one of my many books or scrolling through Twitter.
