MY STORY

Thanks for checking out my site! I’m currently a media coordinator at CNN's Washington bureau, born and raised in Braintree, Massachusetts.

 

Storytelling has always been part of me. As a toddler, I would grab my dad’s microphone in our makeshift home studio and speak gibberish. I found journalism through a passion for writing, and fostered my desire to tell stories at Boston University.

 

I was the Statehouse correspondent for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette during my senior year, where I wrote weekly stories covering the latest Beacon Hill politics and forged relationships with legislators.

 

A semester in our nation's capital gave me a passion for political reporting. While in DC, I interned for the longest-running show on television, NBC’s “Meet the Press.” I also have worked with the NBC Boston investigative unit, WEEI and The Boston Globe.

 

My journalistic endeavors have taken me to Las Vegas to cover the world’s largest tech conference, to Capitol Hill to interview senators, to Fenway Park, and naturally to a Boston blizzard or two.

 

After graduation, I returned to DC for a job as a CNN news associate. I spent six months as an overnight assignment editor, compiling morning handover notes and preparing for the 'New Day' program. As a media coordinator, I act as the network's eyes and ears for all events out of Washington, collaborating with reporters and producers to deliver the top highlights to CNN's viewers and readers across all platforms.

My journalistic career began with The Daily Free Press, BU’s independent student newspaper. I eventually served as its sports editor, which included managing a 40-person team and editing all sports content each day.

 

I want to report on issues that matter to readers and viewers. Journalism is a unique profession – you travel, meet new people and learn about exciting things – but the best part is telling stories that inspire others. Though today's media landscape is constantly evolving and it’s hard to predict what’s next, my drive and self-starting nature will help me stay ahead of the next trend. I also hope to be part of the next generation of journalists who build up trust in the media.

 

When I’m not chasing a story, you can find me rewatching Boy Meets World for the 12th time, jamming to the latest Broadway hits or watching the Red Sox.

 

Everyone has a story, and I can’t wait to tell it. Click around to see samples of my work and resume reel.
