I have been a political reporter in Washington, D.C., since 2012, covering Congress, campaigns and the White House.

Since January 2015, I have been with U.S. News and World Report and was previously the Washington, D.C., reporter for United Press International.

While I was at UPI, I co-wrote trending news blog, and helped develop the company’s social media presence.

I’m a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism, earning my Masters degree in reporting in August 2011. I reported on education and public affairs in Chicago and Washington.

As part of my graduate studies, I completed a four-month reporting residency at the Cambodia Daily in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where I covered breaking local and national news, and studied the effect of the government’s systematic relocation of impoverished residents.

In May of 2010, I graduated from Tufts University with a degree in English and Music. As a member of the Tufts Chamber singers and the Amalgamates co-ed a cappella group, I traveled and performed all over New England and the world. I cut my teeth writing for the Tufts Daily, and Salient Magazine in Wellington, New Zealand, where I studied abroad. I was an intern at WBUR, Boston’s NPR radio station, and freelanced for the Chicagoland Journal for the Arts.
