Articles from the San Francisco Chronicle

As part of the Hearst Journalism Fellowship, a rotational program for early-career journalists, I was placed at the San Francisco Chronicle, starting August 2023. I cover insurance, environmental justice and earthquake topics on the paper's climate team. So far, I have tackled enterprise, breaking news and general assignment stories.


Articles from The Morning Call

I interned at The Morning Call -- the regional newspaper for the Lehigh Valley -- during the summer of 2021, covering general assignment local news.  When the internship was up, I was invited to stay as a freelance reporter, so during my senior year I continued to write stories for The Morning Call.


Articles from the The Brown and White

The Brown and White is the student newspaper at Lehigh University. I wrote for the paper all four years of college and it is where I found a passion for journalism. I quickly became an editor, starting out in the lifestyle section, then moving to the news section and finishing off my senior year as editor in chief. 

As a web & new media communications intern for Lehigh University in my senior year of school, I wrote blog posts for the admissions website discussing my college experience and giving advice to prospective and current students.
