Howdy, howdy! I'm a multimedia storyteller with a history of crafting content for print and digital platforms. I have over four years' experience managing daily-turn stories alongside longer-term projects on tight deadlines. 

A Texas gal based in Washington, D.C., I am currently hosting and producing the Week in Congress podcast for the Medill News Service. I also report on the Wisconsin congressional delegation for the Wisconsin State Journal and on congressional hearings for UPI as part of Medill's media partner arrangement.

Reporting across the United States, I currently cover politics in our nation's capital. I have also covered local government, the environment, elections and health care on the ground in Texas, Illinois, Virginia and Wisconsin.  

I break down political, scientific and technical jargon into accessible language for target audiences at various publications nationwide. My work has appeared in the Wisconsin State Journal, UPI and Houston Public Media, among others. 

Driven by perpetual curiosity, I am a self-starter who learns fast and values creativity when tackling new projects.
