News Philosophy

“To always be the voice of the voiceless. Everyone has a story to tell and it’s my job to find it and share it with you.”

Hobbies, Interests & Community Involvement

“I’m new to Fort Myers! I’m quickly getting used to the sunshine and beautiful beaches. If you see me out running, playing tennis, at a yoga class, at a Naples Press Club meeting or walking the beach, come say hello and introduce yourself! I’m always looking to meet new people (which often lead to new stories … and friends!).”

Education

Loyola University Chicago, plus a semester abroad at the Universidad Alberto Hurtado in Santiago, Chile.

Likes best about Southwest Florida

Hometown

South Berwick, Maine.

Family

“Very loving, generous and kind mother and father, a goal-oriented and focused older brother, and an older sister who has blessed me with a beautiful niece and nephew!”
