About me


I’ve spent more than a decade using narrative journalism and new media to document life in rural New England. My beats have included local government, politics and issues related to aging and elder care. I attended the University of New Hampshire and completed fellowships with the Poynter Institute and the New York Times Foundation. In 2012, I left my job as online editor for the Concord (NH) Monitor to pursue a master’s degree at Northeastern University where I’m studying ways to ensure that tomorrow’s journalism is accurate, transparent and fundamental to a functioning democracy. I’m a contributor to NetNewsCheck.com, a website covering trends in digital media. My work has been published by Poynter.org, Editor & Publisher and the Center for Digital Ethics & Policy at Loyola University.
