About me

 

I’ve worked as a reporter, web editor, and the editor of a daily newspaper. In April 2021, I will start a new job as deputy managing editor at VTDigger, an award-winning nonprofit news website.

My reporting career has taken me from Fenway Park to one of the country’s smallest post offices; from crime scenes and courtrooms to the skies over Vermont. After joining the Valley News as a reporter in 2012, I became the paper’s first web editor in 2015, directing publication of breaking news, video, multimedia and social media and using a quality-driven approach to double editorial page views in a three-year period.

I served as editor of the Valley News from December 2018 to April 2021, including leading a staff of 16+ reporters, photographers and editors through the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic; transitioning the newspaper to a new design and printing press; increasing reader engagement through community outreach; and securing new funding through Report For America, Solutions Journalism Network and other avenues.

I’ve previously reported for newsrooms large (The Boston Globe) and tiny (The Molokai Dispatch), and spent much of my childhood hanging around my local newspaper in Framingham, Mass., where my dad was an editor.
