I’m an alumna of the Missouri School of Journalism graduate program, chair of the Society of Professional Journalists’ Freelance Community and a member of SPJ’s FOI Committee.

At Mizzou, I worked as a research assistant at the international professional organization Investigative Reporters and Editors. I previously attended the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine, and the University of New Hampshire.

I learned radio as founding program director of Portsmouth Community Radio, a low-power FM station in New Hampshire that launched with help from Prometheus Radio Project and the dedication of dozens of volunteers.

Before turning my journalism hobby into a career, I worked in New Hampshire as a marketing consultant for artists, nonprofits and small businesses, and previously as a bartender and a farmer.
