I’m a data journalist with a passion for state legislative trends and women's political interests. I'm a contributing news reporter for TeenVogue.com, where I've written over 175 articles to help women engage with daily news, politics, and health. In September 2018, I graduated from Columbia Journalism School's Lede Program for data journalists with analysis skills in Python, SQL, web scraping, mapping and interactive graphics. After graduation, I accepted a job helping ProPublica's Electionland with 2018 election coverage.
Previously, I've worked for Newsweek as a Staff Writer, as well as earned bylines at The Associated Press as a legislative relief reporter. In 2016, I covered the presidential election for Teen Vogue and attended the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention to lead on-the-ground digital coverage.
At Newsweek, I built interactive maps and graphics to showcase trends in state policies while spearheading enterprise reporting. I've immersed myself in iOS and Android app development, learned R to enhance data reporting, and created multimedia content for Teen Vogue, CNN.com, and The Kansas City Star. If I don't know a software or platform, I'll happily learn it.
