Not Your Average Journalist.
I'm a US Army veteran with life experience and a voice who's not afraid to use it. While my background is extensive, it's not traditional. My passion for storytelling, coupled with social media, helps me tell the big story with engaging content. I'm not afraid to ideate, plan, edit and lead to give the audience what they want.
Transitioning from the fitness industry to journalism is a dream come true and look forward to sharing my talent with the world.
