A journalist on all platforms
Sunflower Horizons reporter
I made my journalism debut in second grade. I wrote a Thanksgiving short story (as in three paragraphs) on Tom Turkey that was published in our small town newspaper. It’s my only newspaper clipping that is laminated.
I still haven’t gotten over the rush of seeing my name in print. After high school, I went to Lehigh University and graduated with degrees in journalism and economics.
My first newspaper job was in Steamboat Springs, Colo., where I covered everything from high school football to ski town politics. Later I moved to Bend, Ore., to work as a city hall reporter for the The Bulletin.
So far, my journalism career has sent me up a hot air balloon, to the middle of a burning house and on the trail of a tornado. But even better, it is a job that gives me the chance to meet people from all walks of life who have amazing stories to share.
When not in the office, I am usually outdoors running or biking. And, when the stars are aligned and Kansas is graced with enough snow, you might even catch me cross-country skiing
