I'm excited to join the Patch team as the Dormont-Brookline Patch local editor! Community journalism is what I love, and I'm glad for the chance to cover this area.
I've been working in community journalism since 2007. My career started at the Washington Observer-Reporter, where I was an intern before I became a freelance contributor. I then was the fulltime staff reporter for the Penn-Trafford Star, a weekly publication of Trib Total Media.
I graduated from Washington & Jefferson College with a degree in English, and concentrations in professional writing and information technology.
The Dormont-Brookline area has a lot to offer and I'm excited to be a part of the community. Look for me in the area and please share your stories!
