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.
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 writing thanks to my personal journey with 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 educate people about healthy living.
I am currently pursuing my MS in Health Education and Behavior at the University of Florida. After I graduate as a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES), I plan to work in a hollistic health setting and use my skillset to help people heal.
