Style of reporting: Feature writing, in-depth storytelling, and multimedia digital reporting
Previous internship or work experience: Reporter for the Burlington-Times News, Freelance sports writer, Senior Sports Reporter for The Pendulum
Favorite reporting experience: The most memorable reporting experience I’ve had so far was as a reporter for the Burlington-Times News when I wrote a feature story of a woman’s fight to battle an unexpected diagnosis of stage 4 colon cancer. The opportunity to tell her story and get the word out about her journey to beat cancer raised awareness and financial support from the community, which made a promising difference in her life.
