Originally from Dallas, Texas. She interned at the International Business Times, The Dallas Morning News, Journey Through NYC Religions, The Daily Caller and the Azie News.

"Living in New York City has brought me into contact with influential, ambitious and inspiring people and taught me to have some grit. Getting to know the city’s neighborhoods and people from a variety of countries and socio-economic backgrounds has been the next best thing to traveling the world and has made navigating my way around other unfamiliar American cities a breeze. Exploring New York and reporting from different events has also given me the confidence to go to just about any venue alone and talk to strangers with excitement, curiosity and determination, from a mosque to a tattoo convention to embassies to Wall Street banks. Also, editors seem to pay attention when New York is listed on your resume. As an editor in Dallas told me as an intern, 'Reporters try their whole careers to land in New York, and you’re already there. Stay for a while.'"
