Born outside of Kansas City, I am a senior at Texas Christian University in Fort
Worth, Texas, where I study journalism and Spanish. Currently, I am the higher-education reporting intern at USA TODAY at headquarters in McLean, Va., during a semester-long academic internship program. I recently returned from a semester abroad studying Spanish at La Universidad Pablo de Olavide in Seville, Spain.
I am an Spring 2011 alumna of the USA TODAY Collegiate Correspondent Program. Last fall, I served as the News Director for the newly-converged student media, TCU 360. In the summer of 2012, I interned at the Cape Cod Times, where I was picked up by the Associated Press and had 12 A1 stories.
In the past, I was an opinion columnist, reporter and designer for the TCU Daily Skiff and Managing Editor of Image Magazine. In the summer of 2011, I was a writing intern at Greenability Magazine in Kansas City.
When I’m not writing, I’m baking, scrolling through PetFinder and making crafts.
