About Me: Born in San Antonio and raised in Arkansas, I returned to Texas as soon as possible to study at Texas A&M University, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in telecommunications and media studies. I began my journalism career in 2014 as an editor for The Eagle in Bryan, Texas, and later became a high school Sportbeat writer for the newspaper. My seven years at The Eagle have reinforced my passion for journalism and I love meeting people and telling their stories, both in the field and outside. I’ve seen firsthand the importance of hyperlocal journalism in a community, especially in a busy 2020 when I was helping with reporting and design alongside my high school athletics. I joined Patch in 2021 as the Texas Field Editor for the Conroe-Montgomery County area. I look forward to your questions, comments and ideas for stories!
