Iā€™m just a red wine lovin' gal who's obsessed with pop culture, writes for a living and tweets a lot.

It began with a two-year internship for Odyssey beginning in 2015. After graduating from Washington State University's Edward R. Murrow College of Communication in 2017, I became a freelance entertainment writer for Ville Magazine while also interning at KING 5 in Seattle. For the past two years, I've been the arts and entertainment reporter for the Statesman Journal, part of the USA TODAY Network, in Salem, Oregon.

I cover "things to do" ā€” think events, festivals, fairs, concerts, theater, exhibits ā€” while also reporting on music, movies and television when it connects to the Mid-Willamette Valley. Occasionally, I'm featured in videos and cover breaking news. 

I'm also the lead coordinator/emcee for the Salem Storytellers Project, part of the USA TODAY Network's national Storytellers Project (more on that here). 

When I am not on the clock, you can find me spending time with friends and family, binge-watching my latest show, searching for new music, listening to podcasts, exploring the city, at a festival or having a drink (or three) at the bar. Cheers!
