What I enjoy most about working for CU Boulder

I love sharing content that will have a positive impact on communities and the College of Engineering's mission to address the world's greatest challenges is inspiring. The views in Boulder don't hurt either!


I am a journalist-turned-communications specialist who is excited to create content that shares impactful research and ideas. I spent the past five years as a news producer at 9News in Denver, where I wrote stories and produced videos for the station’s TV, online and social media platforms. I also covered news in upstate New York and North Carolina after earning my bachelor’s degree from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University. In my spare time, you can find me hiking up a mountain or skiing down one!
