I'm passionate about journalism in all its forms. I started my career in newspapers then made the shift to public radio and haven't looked back. Despite my passion for audio story telling, I believe that a story should be told in the medium that best suits it. That is why I obtained certification as a master copy editor from ACES. As a born and bred Midwesterner, I spent a good chunk of my life living all over the world, but now I'm back in St. Louis, which is a fantastic place to be a journalist. When not thinking about the news, I am an avid cyclist and equally avid dog lover.
