Social Media

Creating a social media plan for The Observer, Notre Dame’s daily, independent paper, from home.

I found social media and audience engagement during a communications internship. Now, I live and breathe social. I think having a grasp of social media and audience is essential in this age of journalism.

Writing & Reporting

Conducting an unexpected phone interview in the souq in Rabat, Morocco.

I’ve been reporting my entire life — I have a notebook from when I was 7 full of interviews I conducted with my family. I’ve learned a lot since then, but I have the same driving force: I love to tell people’s stories.

Video, Audio and Photo

Getting ready to cover a story at night on Notre Dame’s campus, camera in hand.

While at Notre Dame, I took classes in photography, audio and videography, and was able to put it to work in my reporting. Even my senior thesis was a five-episode podcast series about Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Through audience engagement, I want to give others the tools to understand the world and people around them.

Recently, I finished my senior thesis, a 5-episode podcast series on Mayor Pete Buttigieg, his run for president and the impact on his hometown of South Bend. Listen here.
