Telling truth to power is what motivates me as a journalist.

I am a senior at American University majoring in journalism and minoring in biology. I expect to graduate in May 2018.

I am about to begin my summer internship with Bloomberg BNA. I recently spent a semester interning with the Durango Herald as their Washington Correspondent, covering the Colorado delegation on Capitol Hill.

Previously, I have written for College Magazine, Media File and The Eagle. I founded The Bottom Line, and I am a freelance editor for articles that have been published in NBC News, the Huffington Post and The Hill. I started my career as Editor-in-Chief of the award-winning publication Scot Scoop News.

Beyond my journalistic endeavors, I have also worked as a Program Associate and Conference Assistant for American University Housing and Dining Programs, a key holder at The Walking Company and a marketing intern at Road Warrior, LLC. I serve as the Events Director for SOC Ambassadors, the Executive Vice President of the AU chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, the Social Director for ReJEWvenate and a member of the American University Women in Science club.
