My Portfolio

Welcome to my portfolio. Below this, you’ll find brief summaries of, and links to, what I consider my best work as a journalist.

I have completed a paid summer internship as a general assignment news reporter at the Salina Journal in 2016. I have also served as a staff news reporter for over three years, as a desk editor for a summer and a fall semester, as a copy editor for a year, and now as a sports reporter at my university newspaper, the Kansas State Collegian.

I am working toward a career in journalism, and hope to work as either a general assignment reporter, a sports writer, or a law reporter/analyst.

Here is some of my favorite work:
