I majored in English literature and have a graduate degree in food systems. For my undergraduate senior project, I interviewed paranormal investigators and spent time at a haunted bridge to write about ghost stories and how we tell them.
I started my journalism career at the Addison County Independent, covering school board meetings, town politics, and the occasional hurricane or horse-rustling incident. There, I learned to run a website, started a newsletter and managed our social media accounts.
These days, I'm the data editor at Burlington-based Seven Days, where I write scrapers and bots, do data analysis and reporting, and create graphics and interactives for editorial projects.
When I'm not at work, you'll find me running, reading, playing the fiddle or puttering in the kitchen.
