My journalistic adventure began in high school, when I took a journalism class because I was curious about the subject. My thirst for knowledge grew stronger and I decided continuing in journalism was perfect for me.
Since September 2010, I’ve worked for The Madison Courier, an 8,000 circulation newspaper in southern Indiana. My assignment has been general assignment reporting, but my main focus is police, courts and city government.
I also copy edit stories, take photos, shoot video and design pages. When the editor is out of the office, I fill in for him, laying out pages and assigning stories.
I graduated from Franklin College in 2010. I have degrees in journalism and public relations and a minor in leadership.
Immediately after graduation, I was named one of 10 people nationwide to win a fellowship with The Indianapolis Star, the largest newspaper in Indiana. I had a chance to write meaningful stories and work with stellar editors and reporters to improve my craft.
