Latest Work: The Eagle-Tribune
At The Eagle-Tribune I am a general assignment staff reporting mainly covering the cities of Lawrence and Methuen. I am the lead beat reporter in Methuen, covering City Hall, schools and community life. In Lawrence, I mainly cover community events and education, along with breaking news in both cities.
Since joining The Eagle-Tribune I have had the chance to work on many multimedia feature packages both for weekday and weekend centerpieces. I am currently in the midst of a months-long multimedia series tracking the progress of the first Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity home build for veterans and their families. Other standout stories include an adopted baby who needed a liver transplant, a Methuen teacher who received an award for her Holocaust education efforts and several stories on the opioid crisis. Check out some of these features here and head to The Eagle-Tribune website for a full list of stories I've done.
GateHouse Media New England
For a look at some of my favorite stories and multimedia packages, head over to my blog or check out this compilation featuring environmental concerns with an airport expansion project, a homemade pipe bomb, and the battle over flood insurance rate hikes.
I covered four towns during my time as a staff reporter for GateHouse Media New England's daily and weekly newspapers. I served as the staff reporter for the coastal town of Marshfield for more than a year, and prior to that covered Randolph, Stoughton and Canton. For Marshfield, I produced six to 14 deadline stories per week both for my paper, the Marshfield Mariner, and contributed to The Patriot Ledger daily newspaper. Each town has its own Wicked Local website with daily updates as well. For a look at my work, check the Marshfield Mariner website or the general Wicked Local website, which includes my Patriot Ledger bylines.
Boston Marathon 2013 Coverage and Boston Magazine
As an editorial intern at Boston magazine I fact check and research everything from sidebars to features. I also assemble and write sidebars and parts of packages including Boston's 50 most powerful philanthropists, an upcoming fitness sidebar and an accessories package for an upcoming issue of Boston Weddings. For the web, I pitch and write for the online blogs, including a story on how university open houses were affected by the Boston lockdown, a fashion Q&A with an Etsy seller and a technology and health post.
The Patriot Ledger
While interning for this newspaper in summer 2012 I had the opportunity to write stories for both print and web content, as well as take photographs and videos. Since the Ledger covers the entire South Shore of Massachusetts, I was sent on assignment from Boston to Plymouth. Stories I wrote included flooding in Quincy, a drunk driving incident in Randolph, a bank robbery in progress in Marshfield, and a piece on New England's first artificial heart recipient.

Archant // Hornsey, Crouch End & Muswell Hill and Tottenham & Wood Green Journals
As part of my study abroad program in London, U.K., I interned at these two weekly papers in North London, part of Archant, the largest regional media group in the U.K. I interned here for seven weeks in spring 2012, creating content for both weekly print editions of the paper and daily web updates. I wrote stories on topics including crime, unemployment issues, rare plants, and public transportation issues, and was also able to shadow a reporter covering the mayoral race between Boris Johnson and Ken Livingstone. While many of these stories were shorter due to space restrictions in the print editions, it actually allowed me to write dozens of articles.
The Press & Sun-Bulletin
I have both freelanced and interned for this newspaper, which gave me the ability to write for my hometown area of Binghamton, New York. I had written opinion pieces for the Press & Sun throughout high school, and in summer 2011 became an official reporting intern for this daily Gannett paper. I covered topics including community news, local festivals, public works projects, and Binghamton University programs. I simultaneously completed this internship with an internship at Newspaper Publishers, LLC., listed below. Starting in 2012, I began freelancing articles for this paper about local college life and summer festival events.
Newspaper Publishers, LLC.
I interned here in summer 2011, exploring the communities of the Greater Binghamton area. My work involved articles on town board meetings, community events, environmental issues, and profiles on local residents and organizations.
Binghamton University Alumni Communications Office
For my first internship in summer 2010, I wrote articles for the alumni e-newsletter, edited pamphlets, and researched social media tactics for the university.
