I am the public education reporter for the Texas Tribune, covering K-12 policy and politics throughout the state of Texas. I headed south directly from Connecticut, where I spent two years as a public education, transit and zoning reporter for the hyperlocal nonprofit New Haven Independent.
After graduating from Yale in 2013, I received a Parker Huang Undergraduate Travel Fellowship to report for nine months on social issues affecting rural and urban Afro-Panamanian populations.

A former environmental studies major, I have a soft spot for science journalism, but above all I look for stories about people acting and effecting change in their communities.
