Senior Content Editor, Midwest Newsroom

As the Midwest Newsroom’s senior content editor, I strive to amplify voices from the region our audiences don’t often hear from. I work with our reporters to seek out stories and experiences that help broaden perspectives and hold people accountable. I also seek to share our team’s reporting in all kinds of mediums to meet our audiences where they are.

At the end of the day, I want people to engage with journalism that helps them make choices in their life – at the grocery store, at the ballot box, at the school board meeting, and so on.

I’ve spent time reporting for NPR’s science desk, Harvest Public Media and KBIA in Columbia, Missouri. My teaching background at the Missouri School of Journalism helps me coach reporters and develop talented journalists.
