I am currently an associate producer with VoxMedia on the web show The Divided States of Women with Liz Plank. I was formerly an editorial assistant at MSNBC with shows such as The Beat with Ari Melber, For the Record with Greta Van Susteren and PoliticsNation with Rev. Al Sharpton.
I started at MSNBC as an intern at The Rachel Maddow Show and Live with Thomas Roberts. This experience has taught me the in’s and outs of broadcast journalism from both the commentary and hard news side of the trade. I am experienced in software, such as iNews and Thunder.
I graduated with a dual bachelor of arts in Journalism and Media Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies from Rutgers University in New Brunswick. I am a strong writer and researcher and have worked tirelessly at honing my data literacy skills in my spare time. I received highest honors as well as the Dorothy Hamilton Balliet Award for Outstanding Research for the work on my senior honors thesis in Women’s Studies. I have learned a lot more about the industry as an intern at MSNBC and have greatly improved my research skills as a writer and journalist as a part of the organization.
My education has provided me with crucial journalistic skills including editorial judgment and the ethics involved in being a practicing journalist. I strive for originality, fairness and great storytelling in all of my work.
In addition to traditional journalistic skills, I have taken several coding classes during my time at Rutgers. Much of my coding acumen is self-taught and I am constantly improving every day.
