Breaking News Reporter — Pasco

I cover breaking news with an emphasis on Pasco. I’m passionate about reporting on communities that may face extra challenges accessing care — immigrants, minorities, women, LGBTQ individuals, disabled people, prisoners, the uninsured and the poor. I’m a lifelong Floridian (from Coral Springs) and a University of Florida graduate. I know how much this state has to offer beyond the stereotypes and jokes, and I care about making sure every Floridian gets a chance to be heard. I have seen the movie Lady Bird 10 times and I spend too much of my free time making Spotify playlists.
