Professional Bio

Cheerleading the incredible humans in public media and helping stations serve their audiences is what gives me life. In this season, that means serving as a growth-focused editor for anything Network-oriented (i.e. empowering stations) at NPR. In the past, that's looked like being the stations editor for NPR One, "beautiful audio editing mermaid" & Digital Editor for a 10-station collaborative focused on guns, "digital creation boss queen" at what's now Vermont Public, a national talk show producer and an intern at multiple stations and NPR.

If and when public media no longer needs me, I will be out in my garden with my puppies.

Fun Fact: I once got an award for my first (and I think only?) newscast spot, which was about Target finally coming to Vermont. I am very proud of this (my likely only audio-related award.)
