Moving to the city has been my dream for years, and I'm thrilled to immerse myself into the diverse culture and to learn what it means to be a Bostonian. I began my career in journalism at the University of Maine at Farmington, where I reported for the campus newspaper, the Farmington Flyer, Mount Blue TV and the Mount Desert Islander.

I received my bachelor's degree in 2012 and moved to Portland, Maine, where I worked for "Maine Calling," an interactive radio talk show on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.

In the fall of 2013 I was accepted to Emerson College for their two- year graduate program in Broadcast Journalism, and graduated in May 2015 with a Master's degree.

I'm currently a contributor to Public Radio International, Huffington Post, and
