Bio: I love community journalism and have been reporting the news since my college days. I spent my first summer home from Eastern Michigan University at an internship with C&G Newspapers, and spent the following summer interning with the Macomb Daily. I served as editor-in-chief of EMU's student-run newspaper, the Eastern Echo, my junior year and picked up plenty of freelance work along the way. After graduating with my journalism degree, I worked as a reporter covering Ypsilanti for the Ann Arbor News and later covered the city of Troy as a reporter with C&G Newspapers.
I've spent the past few years freelancing for various publications, with my work appearing in the Toledo City Paper, Ann Arbor Family Press, Metro Parent Magazine, EduGuide.org and of course, Patch.com!
In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, and sampling as many ice cream flavors as humanly possible.
