While studying journalism and English at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, I wrote campus news for The Miami Student and later served as the Opinion Editor. Each summer I had an internship, and not the coffee-fetching and pencil-sharpening kind. My internships involved working 40+ hours, covering courts and breaking news, editing videos and writing dozens of stories I’m really proud of.
I’ve interned with the Colorado Springs Gazette, Lexington Herald-Leader, NBCWashington.com., Her Campus and Lousiville.com. I’ve also been published on Mic.com, Huffington Post and in The Cincinnati Enquirer. I’m currently tackling my first reporting job at The Southern Illinoisan in Carbondale, Ill.
