Bio

I’m an award-winning broadcast journalist at WITF with a background in television, radio, and digital reporting.

A natural gas drilling rig in northeastern Pennsylvania.

As the Harrisburg reporter for StateImpact Pennsylvania, I cover public policy related to energy and the environment with a focus on Marcellus Shale natural gas development. The project is a collaboration between WITF and WHYY in Philadelphia.

My work airs on public radio stations throughout Pennsylvania and is frequently picked up nationally by NPR shows including Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition.

I have won numerous awards for my investigative work, including a national Edward R. Murrow award for a story about how gas drilling waste affected a central Pennsylvania community.

Before joining StateImpact Pennsylvania, I was a multimedia reporter for WMHT in Albany, New York and appeared regularly on the station’s statewide public affairs TV show, New York NOW. I covered everything from Albany’s nanotechnology sector, to the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy in New York City, and the debate over the state’s moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.

My work at WMHT was part of the Innovation Trail— a collaboration among six public stations covering the economy of upstate New York. My reports aired on PBS and NPR stations throughout the state, including WNYC and WNET Thirteen in New York City.

I was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and previously worked as a reporter and anchor for local television stations in Lancaster and Casper, Wyoming. I began my broadcasting career as an intern on the assignment desk at WBZ-TV in Boston.
