I’m a hard-working, arts-loving, coffee-drinking, Twitter-using,
journalist, editor and professional idea generator
I’m a trained multimedia journalist and editor working as a social engagement manager and native content creator for HuffPost Partner Studio, at The Huffington Post. I’m an avid tweeter with a passion for proper grammar and an insatiable curiosity about what works on the web. I have clips from Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, The NewsHouse, Syracuse New Times, The Post and Courier, Patch and more.
I received my master’s in arts journalism/editing from Syracuse University, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Connecticut with my bachelor’s degree in journalism.
AWARDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS
I was the Associate Executive Producer of The NewsHouse when we earned the SPJ’s Mark of Excellence Award as the Best Independent Online Student Publication (Large) in the nation. I was the editor-in-chief of The Daily Campus during its 2012 win of 3rd runner up for New England College Newspaper of the Year. While working as a peer mentor for UConn Connects, I was honored as the Facilitator of the Year. During my time at UConn, I was a recipient of the Deeley Foundation Scholarship, Charles Litsky Memorial Scholarship and the Chemtura Corporation Scholarship, and I was named a New England Scholar in 2010 and 2011. As a senior at UConn, I was appointed as one of five undergraduate senators to the University Senate and recognized as an Outstanding Senior by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
I am currently a member of the American Copy Editors Society. In college, I was a member of Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society, Sigma Alpha Lambda Leadership Society, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.
UConn’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences wrote an article about my recognition as an Outstanding Senior. When I ran the “Save the DC Campaign” while at The Daily Campus, I made cameos in the Connecticut Post, CT News Junkie, College Media Matters, Jim Romenesko’s blog and an editorial in The Good 5Cent Cigar.

I have made duck calls on the stage at The Apollo. I can crochet anything as long as it’s rectangular. I taught archery when I was in high school. I have a special place in my heart for Panera’s mac & cheese. I know how to play the didgeridoo. I was once fiercely anti-Oxford-comma, but I’ve softened with age… it happens.
