I am a senior reporter and editor at WYPR, Baltimore’s public radio station. My beat is Maryland state politics and government, but in practice, I report on a wide range of topics, from criminal justice to health to the environment. My work spans breaking news and enterprise stories, for both radio and web.
I have worked across different types of media — newspapers, web and radio. I especially love mining SQL- or Excel-based datasets for stories. My reporting has won awards, including a national Edward R. Murrow award, and led to FBI investigations.
I grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta and went to college at the University of Pennsylvania, where I led The Daily Pennsylvanian. Since college, I have lived in Washington, D.C., where I also received my master’s in journalism at American University, and Baltimore, where I have been since late 2015.
I live with my husband, daughter and two dogs — Brooks, named for the late Orioles great Brooks Robinson, and Bueller, named for the iconic John Hughes character.
