Originally from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, I have spent the last five years in Syracuse, New York earning my bachelor's as a double major in Art & Music Histories and Communication Sciences and Disorders. I completed my master's degree in 2022 as part of the Goldring Arts Journalism and Communications program at the S.I Newhouse School of Public Communications. 

After becoming a historian, I have found my passion in journalism. It's the perfect culmination of all my interests.
