I'm a journalist telling true stories at the intersection of evidence and human interest.

Currently, I'm the senior reporter for higher education at EdSurge in Washington, D.C. I write about the future of learning. 

I also write about food and travel for multiple publications. 

Previously, I covered labor policy, workplace culture, employment data and career advice for U.S. News & World Report. I wrote about social justice, religion, federal policy, and labor at The Chronicle of Philanthropy. I've written for The Chronicle of Higher Education, Washington Post Express, Sauce Magazine, Narratively, and Town & Style St. Louis Magazine, where I worked as managing editor.

I won the 2015 David W. Miller Award for Young Journalists. I was named a 2018 fellow by the National Press Foundation. 

I studied history and English at The College of William & Mary.
