Work has previously appeared: The Tucson Citizen, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, National Catholic Reporter, St. Anthony Messenger, the Dallas Morning News and others.

I am a award-winning Tucson-based reporter and writer with 10+ years experience covering education (K-12, community colleges, university) religion and general assignment. I'm flexible, a quick-study, love challenges, investigations and the teamwork that comes from a good writer-editor relationship. I meet deadlines and write to word count. I’ve received awards from the Arizona Press Club for education reporting and feature column writing, and from the National Catholic Press Association for both feature and opinion writing.
