  • Who am I?

    I cover health, social services and the Missouri Legislature for the News Tribune in Jefferson City, Mo. I graduated from Butler University in 2012 with a degree in electronic and print journalism. Writing is my passion and I also enjoy shooting and editing video. In my free time, you can find me at a country music concert, at the gym, cooking up my next culinary creation or crocheting. Please browse my portfolio. Comments and emails are welcome.
