Get 2 Know Me

  • Born and raised in Chicago, I joined the KPRC team in May of 2017.
  • I’m enamored with our city’s beautiful weather (well, except for the brutal summer!), burgeoning food and cultural scene, and the kind warmth and welcome from the people I meet.
  • I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a Bronze Tablet Scholar, salutatorian, summa cum laude and in the top three percent of the university’s graduating class (that made my mother happy).

I have an infinite love for people, humanity and storytelling and firmly believe in the power of journalism.

Sharing people’s voices can highlight injustice and bring support to those who need it most.

If any story I tell affects even just one person, it is an accomplishment in my book.

If you want it - go get it!


My mantra.

What drives me every day is knowing that we are telling stories that impact our community.

As journalists, we have a responsibility to tell stories that are accurate, balanced, informative and relevant. It is a responsibility I do not take lightly.
