Nothing about my life has been typical. Before I fell in love with radio journalism, I enjoyed a long career in the arts in musical theatre.

In 2019, I moved to Tampa from Austin, TX. While in the Lone Star State, I met my husband and had two beautiful boys. While continuing to work in the arts world, I also volunteered with members of the LGBTQ community in recovery. That outreach allowed me to meet groups of people from all walks of life and led me on a path to give a voice to the voiceless.

Now I am a senior at the University of South Florida studying Broadcast News. This is my fourth semester at WUSF and I have learned and grown so much. I’m excited to finish the last semester strong and continue to put everything I've learned at WUSF into practice.

Having worked in the Tampa radio community for over a year, joining National Public Radio has been a dream come true.

While I miss "keepin’ it weird" in Austin, the rich history and diversity in the Tampa Bay area and the great people who live here are why this is now my favorite place to call home.
