Previous Media Experience:
WATE is my first job post-graduation and I could not be happier to be in Knoxville! Through college, I worked with TheWrap, LAist, Fox News and Sky News.
Running, baking, pretending I am a food critic otherwise known as trying all types of foods/restaurants. If you have suggestions I have to try in the area–email me!
What You Enjoy About Local News:
I love telling stories. I think Local News is special because the people these stories most impact are our peers and fellow community members. The news should be on the side of the people to help, inform, and make progress in areas that might have been forgotten if it not for local media. Social media also plays a huge role in local news because journalists can listen to what the community wants and needs directly but then, also act on it.
