I am a journalist, editor, researcher, and learner dedicated to delivering news reporting and informational pieces. I'm currently seeking employment in the Cincinnati area. Most recently I worked in medical journalism, and my duties included researching and developing stories relevant to the specialties of nephrology, internal medicine and external medicine. I also managed social media pages and live reported from medical conferences. I also have experience in content writing and SEO.
I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Cincinnati, McMicken College of Arts and Sciences where I received my B.A. in Journalism. Throughout my time at UC, I was involved in organizations and community service throughout the Greater Cincinnati region. I have developed my writing, reporting, interviewing, editing, and fact-checking skills through creating and developing hyper-local newsworthy stories.
