I'm a storyteller and political junkie who loves finding the human interest features that are so often buried in political mud-slinging and data reports.
I joined the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in June 2016, where I'm covering state politics and the 2016 election.
Before that, I covered the Illinois statehouse for The Chicago Tribune and handled social media for The Washington Monthly in D.C.
From Detroit originally, I've written about Michigan policy and environmental issues for Gongwer News Service, Bridge Magazine and Great Lakes Echo.
I have an M.A. in public affairs from the University of Illinois and a B.A. in journalism from Michigan State University, where I was editor-in-chief of MSU's daily independent newspaper, The State News.
