About me

I’m an award-winning 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 environmental issues, 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 by national NPR shows including Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition.

My coverage of Pennsylvania’s gas boom has been recognized at the regional and national levels– honors include a Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists and a national Edward R. Murrow award. 

Before joining StateImpact, I was a multimedia reporter for WMHT in Albany, New York and appeared on the statewide public affairs TV show, New York NOW. I covered everything from Albany’s nanotechnology sector, to the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy, and the debate over the state’s moratorium on fracking. 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 journalism career as an intern on the assignment desk at WBZ-TV in Boston.
