For as long as I can remember, I have always loved being a bridge for people, supporting their goals, and telling their stories. It’s my greatest passion to see people thrive and to have their voices heard. As a journalist, I get to live out my passion every day. I have the honor of finding and documenting the lives of ordinary people. I get to share their stories with the world and help them find community.

My journey has taken me from icy Maine to even icier Wisconsin. My life experiences and upbringing give me a unique lens that helps me empathize with people from all walks of life. I’ve worked for nonprofits, small newsrooms, and giant companies. Always growing and bettering my craft so I can do what I love to the best of my ability.

If you’re curious about who I am, check out my abbreviated resume and educational background. If you want to see some of the stories I’ve had the pleasure of writing over the years, go in my clips section.

Finally, please don’t hesitate to reach out to. I’m always here to listen and connect.

We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. 

To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be? -- John Keating, Dead Poets Society
