Investigative Reporter (she/her)

I got into investigative journalism, because I believe that it has the power to expose and change wrongdoing.

Before joining this newsroom in late 2019, I worked at NPR stations in Washington D.C., and Atlanta.

My reporting has focused on healthcare, immigration and state politics. From 2017-2018, I was a fellow with Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting.

I got my master’s in journalism from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, and a bachelor’s in international relations from the University of Southern California. I grew up in Los Angeles County, and am excited to be reporting in a place I deeply care about and call home.
