I was active with my college newspaper, The Eastern Echo. Before I graduated college, I had my first full-time professional reporting job. I've worked as a reporter at The Marion (Ohio) Star, the Traverse City (Mich.) Record-Eagle and The Saginaw (Mich.) News, with a commitment to public service and watchdog reporting in government and politics.
