Reporter / Photojournalist
I’m a Montana girl who found her home in the mountains of Alaska. In 2011, I moved to Anchorage from Eugene, Oregon where I spent four years as a reporter/photographer for KEZI. I previously worked as a producer for KPAX in Missoula, Montana as I was attending the University of Montana’s broadcast journalism program (Go Griz!).
My career has afforded me opportunities I think few people will ever have in their lifetime. That includes playing with baby walruses at the Alaska SeaLife Center, flying aerobatics in Valdez and even traveling to Nuuk, Greenland to cover Team Alaska at the Arctic Winter Games.
I’ve hopped aboard the last flag stop train in America in Talkeetna, explored WWII bunkers in Dutch Harbor and covered the Iditarod from start to burled arch twice.
The best part of all of my adventures, though, is the people. From the women of Anaktuvuk Pass who are cultivating a new arctic gardening program to an Alaska Native athlete striving to beat his father’s record in the knuckle hop. I’m fascinated by the cultures that connect communities around the state and I’m honored to share the stories of so many wonderful Alaskans working to make a difference in the world.
I plan on calling Alaska home and can’t wait to see what the Last Frontier has in store for me.
