bio

I’m a visual journalist and multimedia reporter at St. Louis Public Radio, where I make photographs, write digital stories and produce audio features with a focus on issues of inequality, criminal justice reform and immigration. I also serve as a mentor and educator with NPR’s Next Generation Radio project.

In 2019, I reported from the United States-Mexico border as an International Women’s Media Foundation fellow. In 2018, I was named one of The Lit List’s “30 photographers to watch.” I’ve been invited to speak at the annual Public Radio News Directors conference, the Reynolds Journalism Institute’s Women in Journalism Workshop and the Women Photograph workshop at Photoville.

Previously, I was a staff photojournalist at the Naples Daily News in Naples, Florida after working at the Tampa Bay Times as a photo intern, video producer and online picture editor.

My work has been recognized by the Missouri Broadcasters Association, the Florida Society of News Editors, Pictures of the Year International, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the National Association of Black Journalists. In 2014, I was selected to participate in The New York Times'  New York Portfolio Review.

I'm available for freelance assignments in St. Louis and the surrounding areas. Past clients include The New York Times, ProPublica, ESPN's The Undefeated, BuzzFeed News, VICE News and National Geographic.
