I grew up in Weare, New Hampshire and received my bachelor's degree from the University of Hartford in May of 2015. When I arrived at the University of Hartford in August 2011, I was a declared Physics major who decided to join the Student Television Network simply because it seemed interesting, which led to changing my major in January 2012.

I served as the political reporter for STN2 for four years, and the editor-in-chief of Her Campus Hartford, an online lifestyle magazine for college women, for two.

I most recently worked at the Chief-Civil Service Leader in New York, primarily covering city schools and the Mayor's Office. I spent a year in Harrisonburg, Va. at the Daily News-Record, where I was the city beat/politics and government reporter.

When I'm not doing news-related things, I have a wide range of interests including (but by no means limited to) cooking, robotics, building and launching model rockets, photography, fiction and poetry writing, singing, and playing the piano.
