A native of Salt Lake City, Utah, I earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Brigham Young University and a master's degree in mass communication from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. In between degrees, I worked for over a decade as a data encoder for the U.S. Postal Service. I'm proud to say my career journey has now touched two professions – postal delivery and journalism – singled out by the U.S. Constitution as essential to the well-being of the republic.
Currently, I'm a reporter covering Wasatch County for NPR station KPCW in Park City. Prior to that, I reported for Arizona PBS as part of my graduate school coursework, and also worked a news intern for Salt Lake City's NPR station, KUER.
