Welcome to my digital portfolio!
I am a rising junior at The College of New Jersey's Honors Program majoring in Journalism and Professional Writing with minors in Communication Studies and Interactive Multimedia.
I have spent nearly three years honing my skills in news reporting and digital media through specialized collegiate courses and various experiences. I am a National Lifestyle Writer for Her Campus Media and am actively engaged as a Campus Correspondent for the platform. I have served as a news assistant for The Signal, the College's student-run, award-winning weekly newspaper. I gained extra exposure in the newsroom asThe Signal's "Vital Signs" health columnist as well as a staff writer for news, features and opinion pieces.
I have gained valuable industry skills as a Digital Editorial Intern for "The Dr. Oz Show" in Summer 2019, working alongside the editorial, social media and video production teams to create original content for DoctorOz.com. I also worked for Step Up Magazine as a remote journalist and editor for the Boston-based publication. I discovered my niche in feature reporting through coursework and internship experience and hope to pursue a career in the digital news industry.
Whether I am collaborating with an editorial team or brainstorming original content to pitch, I am consistently focused on audience engagement, SEO strategy and creative direction.
As a creative, I enjoy reading new books, journaling, spending *too much time* on Pinterest and browsing lifestyle blogs (all with an iced coffee in hand).
