Tallahassee Correspondent

As a lifelong Floridian, I know how much this state offers beyond the stereotypes and I’m grateful I get to tell some of its story. I cover the legislators we elect here in Tampa Bay and what they’re doing. I’m interested in who gets a voice and who doesn’t, keeping elected leaders accountable and making sure people don’t get lost in the politicking. Tell me what you’re curious about — I bet you’re not the only one wondering. I also welcome conversation about homemade kombucha, yoga and Love Island.
