I am a digital, social, mobile and emerging media expert, currently heading up social media for The Wall Street Journal Digital Network’s MarketWatch site.
I’m a graduate and proud Mizzou Mafia member of the University of Missouri, Columbia. I have a Bachelor’s of Journalism in Investigative Photojournalism and a Bachelor’s of Arts in German. My work has been published in the BBC, the Economist, CNN, NBC, NPR, the Orange County Register and the San Francisco Chronicle, and I also helped numerous media outlets through my work in data journalism at non-profit organization Investigative Reporters and Editors.
In 2013, I created the site TheDroneGirl.com, where I was one of the first journalists to focus on reporting on drones. My coverage has earned me the title of Fortune Magazine’s Most Influential Women in Drones, and I regularly speak at conferences and to media about the latest developments in drones.
I’m also an advocate for the arts, health and fitness. I volunteer at the Walt Disney Family Museum and as a group fitness instructor at the YMCA.
I spend my free time drinking lots of coffee, doing burpees, playing piano, Irish dancing and rock climbing.
