I grew up in Denver and, after living out-of-state for many years, am happy to be back in Colorado covering education and general news for KUNC.

Before joining KUNC in October 2017, I worked at New York Public Radio and on the podcast Revisionist History. I also reported on New York City’s opioid epidemic for NPR’s The Pulse and The Fix, a podcast from The GroundTruth Project. Prior to journalism, I wrote and produced commercials and marketing videos for TV shows and media companies. I am a graduate of Duke University and CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

I love going on adventures and have visited more than 20 countries. I also like to explore local areas, ride my bike and hang out with my family and friends.

Gov. John Hickenlooper wants the federal government to withdraw a proposed rule that restricts conversations health care professionals can have with their patients.

On July 30 Hickenlooper sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services asking that it remove the "Compliance With Statutory Program Integrity Requirements" rule.
