Web I am a graduate student at the University of Missouri School of Journalism and will complete a master's degree in news editing and design in May 2012. I have a bachelor's degree in sociology and anthropology with a minor in English from Cornell College, and chose to attend graduate school to better prepare myself for a career in journalism.

I have six years of varied journalism experience, including working as a reporter, editor and designer for several newspapers and as an intern for a metro daily newspaper and its weekly entertainment magazine. Please see my résumé for more details on my relevant experience and skills.

While I enjoy all aspects of journalism, my real passion is for editing and design. For selected clips of my work, please browse through my website.
