Bio
I recently graduated with a master's degree in journalism.

From the moment I started reporting three years ago, I realized I had a passion for news, telling stories, meeting others and making a difference in people's lives.

I am a multimedia reporter with real, newsroom experience in every journalism platform: television, radio, newspaper, magazine and web/social media.

I can shoot, write and edit on deadline. I also have produced/hosted a weekly show, written for newscasts and anchored when needed.
