I am passionate about local news and its impact on communities - and it is so wonderful to join the community here in Erie!
Previously, I have reported for Boston's Neighborhood Network News (NNN) and have interned with KABC in Los Angeles, the CBS bureau in London, and WCVB in Boston. I was also a recipient of the Meredith-Cronkite Fellowship where I worked with KPHO in Phoenix.
I graduated from Boston University with a dual degree in Broadcast Journalism and Economics. During my time at BU, I was executive producer of "Inside Boston," where we created Emmy-winning content. While at BU, I also wrote for local newspapers and served as a TA for the broadcast department.
It was during high school (at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy, a residential magnet school) that I first discovered my love for journalism. While serving as the student council secretary, I realized the importance of effective communication on achieving an informed student body. This opened my eyes to the world of journalism - a field that gears individuals towards becoming informed and active citizens.
When not on the hunt for a story, you'll find me cooking up a storm, working on a craft project, or running (sometimes begrudgingly).
I was born in Harbin, China, have lived in Boston, Chicago, and Decatur, IL, and am very excited to now call Erie "home!"
