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.

My work has appeared on NPR, on CNN.com, on NBCNews.com, in Slate, in The Huffington Post, in Time, in The Post and Courier and in Washington City Paper.

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.
