After more than ten years of working in college administration, I have decided to pursue a career in journalism. I am excited about this new adventure and the people and topics I will meet along the way. I am pursuing a Master's Degree in Journalism at DePaul University while seeking freelance writing opportunities.
I have two young children: Riley, 5, and Mackenzie, 20 months, and have been married for nearly 10 years.
I especially enjoy traveling and spent college terms in both Stirling, Scotland and Rome, Italy. I also lived in a very small town in England for a year in 2001. Otherwise, I have lived in the Chicago area since elementary school.
Prior to my career switch to journalism, I achieved a Master's Degree in Higher Education Administration at Loyola University Chicago and a Bachelor's Degree from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio.
