Learning Ally

This article discusses the role that Learning Ally, a producer of audiobooks, has on individuals with disabilities. I also took photos for this stroy, which can be found in the tab titled, "My Photos." (warning this link takes you away from my mobile app)

Thrifting for Hospice

This story involved extensive research and I interviewed several people across the country that volunteer at hospice thrift stores. I did not expect the raw emotion that came from my sources and my article. It was a difficult piece to report on, however, it was the one of the most fulfilling articles that I have written yet.

Memorial Hall

This article features the reconstruction of Memorial Hall and what that means to students who are in the multicultural clubs within Memorial Hall. I enjoy writing about cultural issues, so this was a rather fun piece to write. This story was featured on the cover of the Fall 2013 issue of Infusion.
