A Florida native, I fell in love with journalism in fifth grade while touring the Florida Today newspaper headquarters—and it all went from there.
For the past seven years, I have immersed myself in the world of journalism and media to learn everything I can about the industry that captivated me from the very start.
In high school, I led the staff of the award-winning Stanton Devil's Advocate before heading to the Northeast to develop my professional media toolkit at Rutgers University. I graduated with a BA in Journalism and Media Studies in December 2018.
Along the way, I developed a special interest in health reporting thanks to my personal journey overcoming Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (read more about it here). I am particularly interested in lifestyle's connection to chronic disease, and I plan on using my communication skills to help people live healthy, vibrant lives.
I am currently pursuing my MS in Health Education and Behavior at the University of Florida.
