Serving the Valley as part of the Daily Independent team, I cover a range of topics, from police and fire to health and travel. Unless I’m sleeping, you can probably reach me at any hour of the day via email or my social media channels. I enjoy following up on concerns the public has, and I embrace constructive feedback. I’ve been with Independent Newsmedia since 2016. Born in Oklahoma, raised in Texas, I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and Arizona State University. I am now loving life in Arizona since August 2014.
