I’m naturally curious, which is probably why I’ve chosen to explore several beats in my reporting experience. I covered corporate America at the Kansas City Business Journal, community life at the Loveland Reporter-Herald, city government and science at the Columbia Missourian and the police beat at The Maneater, MU’s student newspaper.
As a copy editor and member of the Missourian’s Community Outreach Team, I edit stories, write headlines and try to make our content more engaging. The outreach team just wrapped up its election efforts, and I’m working on a debriefing/blueprint for the next election cycle based on what worked this time around.
If I’m not in the newsroom, I’m probably watching baseball, biking or wandering around Barnes & Noble.
