I’m a reporter in Washington, D.C., writing about higher education and veteran employment for Military Times. Previously, I covered Latino education for the Education Writers Association and worked for local newspapers in New Mexico and Texas. I have also been published in The Atlantic, Washington Post Magazine, Christian Science Monitor, Hechinger Report, Washington City Paper and other news outlets.

A Virginia native, I moved back to my beloved East Coast in September 2014. I have a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s in journalism from Georgetown University.
