About

I am a multimedia journalist who uses video, photos, audio and text to report on global human rights and social issues. 

Originally from Washington state, I studied International Relations and Spanish at Seattle University. During my undergraduate training, I studied abroad in Valparaíso, Chile for six months. Since then, I have spent extensive time in Latin America working or traveling in Argentina, Dominican Republic, Cuba and Mexico.

In 2010, I moved to New York City to dedicate the first five years of my career to supporting education access in NYC and globally. In NYC I was introduced to a community of activists that helped me strengthen my feminist, social justice values that guide my work and life. 

Since making the career change to journalism in 2015, I have interned in Mexico City and New York City for a variety of media houses and news organizations. I have reported on gender violence in Mexico, the 43 missing Ayotzinapa student teachers, crime in NYC, climate change and environmental issues, social protests and local artist movements. 

I believe journalism is crucial to cultivating an informed, empowered and just society. With my work, I aim to promote the untold stories and humanize the consequences of corruption and injustice throughout the U.S. and Latin America.
