The first part of my career in journalism was spent in newspapers.
As a child, I wrote columns for The Matamoras News, a newspaper that my father printed for the borough of Matamoras, Pa. In middle school, I was the editor in chief of the school newspaper. I followed suit in high school and had a successful year at the helm of The Del.Aware, the school newspaper.
Before I went to college (and for a winter and summer after) I also worked as a correspondent for my local newspaper, the Pike County Dispatch.
In college, I started working for the campus newspaper, The Penn, in my first semester. I was hired as editor in chief less than a year later.
I was also published a few times in Indiana County’s local newspaper, The Indiana Gazette.
In the summer of 2013, I moved to Washington D.C. and worked full-time as an editorial intern and reporter for Campaigns & Elections magazine. After my summer as an intern, I was brought on board at C&E as a contributor. As a contributor, I continued to write for both the Campaign Insider blog and the magazine itself.
In May of 2014, I joined FedScoop as an editorial intern where I covered the IT of federal agencies, the White House and Capitol Hill. At the beginning of 2015, I began focusing my efforts on StateScoop — Scoop News Group’s state and local arm.
