I joined KEYT in Santa Barbara in January 2022 as an assignment editor and digital content producer. As a 2021 Center for Health Journalism Data Fellow, I investigated Santa Barbara County's lack of mental health inpatient beds and identified other gaps in mental health services. Previously, I was a staff writer with Noozhawk, an online-only publication that brings around-the-clock news coverage to Santa Barbara County residents. As a general assignment reporter, I covered a wide variety of topics but primarily stick to county government and the COVID-19 pandemic. I graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2020
