An aspiring broadcast news reporter, I pretty much always knew I wanted to be a journalist, so when I was 18 I moved to New York City from the California Bay Area to make it happen.
I'm a production intern for NBC Nightly News, and I'm working toward becoming an on-air correspondent. Before coming to Nightly News, I was an editorial producer for NBC Local Integrated Media, writing news articles and blog posts for NBC's 11 local markets, covering politics, breaking news, technology, business, health, sports, and entertainment news. Prior to that I was a production intern at Morning Joe on MSNBC from January 2014 to May 2014.
When I first came to New York, I didn't yet know what kind of journalism I was interested in. I started out working in web and print journalism, doing entertainment, fashion, and food writing for Glamour Magazine, Slate Magazine, and The Jewish Week, all while working as an associate news editor and senior reporter for The Columbia Daily Spectator.
I found myself gravitating toward political and tech news reporting. Though a writer at heart, my dream job is to be an on-air correspondent and follow in the footsteps of my journalism heroes I grew up watching on the evening news.
I am a senior at Barnard College, graduating in May 2015.

For your amusement, you can watch me participating in a segment on Morning Joe in which I debate Susan Patton (Pricenton Mom) who claims that women should be in college to find a husband.
