About me

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 energy and the environment, with a focus on Marcellus Shale natural gas development. The project is a partnership between WITF and WHYY in Philadelphia.

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

In 2014 I was honored with a national Edward R. Murrow award for a story about how gas drilling waste affected a central Pennsylvania community.

Before joining StateImpact, 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 fracking. 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 have previously worked as a reporter and anchor for commercial television stations in Lancaster and Casper, Wyoming. I began my broadcasting career as an intern on the assignment desk at WBZ-TV in Boston.
