I am a multimedia journalist currently based out of Glens Falls, New York. I work for The Post-Star newspaper covering the environment and local governments, as well as some breaking news. I have also freelanced for Adirondack Life magazine and Audubon magazine. I'm a current member of the Society of Environmental Journalists. I also teach yoga, figure skate and bird watch for fun.
I’ve been at The Post-Star since April 2018. Before that I worked as the environment and Cayuga County government reporter for The Citizen newspaper in Auburn, New York. There I won a couple of awards for my writing including second place in feature writing and first place in public service journalism from the New York State Associated Press Association.
I moved to upstate New York from Bethesda, Maryland in 2015. There I worked as a digital coordinator for Burness, a communications firm that represents nonprofit organizations. Most of my duties centered around video production, photography and social media outreach and advertising. I have my master's degree in magazine, newspaper and online journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. I have bachelor's degrees in English and journalism with a concentration in ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of Connecticut.
