I came to Charlottesville with my partner in 2019 and, since joining Charlottesville Tomorrow in 2021, have enjoyed learning about how people from different parts of this city and surrounding areas get their news. My goal is to help my neighbors here feel pride and ownership over our local news. I want to help build a local newsroom that follows the issues that matter to our diverse communities, and also includes more of our perspectives.
I’ve been an editor and reporter for almost 20 years. Most recently, I spent three years working with local newsrooms and journalists around the country to help them build their editorial missions, processes and ways to make our industry healthier. Before coming to Charlottesville, I spent many years developing immigration coverage for the public radio program The World. Abroad, I reported from Asia, including an edited volume about everyday lives in China and a trio of investigative stories at the end of Sri Lanka’s 30-year civil war.
