I’m an engagement editor with a focus on new and emerging platforms. My writing centers on mental health, LGBTQ+ issues, and pop culture. I’ve gained experience working for both local and national organizations in print, digital, and radio. While I’m well-practiced in traditional writing, reporting, and editing—my true passion lies in social. I love finding ways to reach new audiences and tell stories in ways they haven’t been told before. I’m also a founding member of the Trans Journalists Association.
