DC Intern Turned Permanent DCist

You might call me a unique hybrid of my parents. My mom is a former  journalist and my dad works as a computer consultant. The result? I’m a multi-platform journalist and social media enthusiast. I ask questions and tell stories. I recognize journalism in its purest form, but embrace the technological changes in the industry.

This blog began when I started my adventures as an intern in Washington, D.C. Working at National Public Radio Social Media Desk(@NPRInterns) was amazing (I got to ride an elevator with Madeleine Albright).

But in March 2010 I was offered the opportunity to return to the Nation’s capital for a real [read: paid] job.

Now I work at Fight Crime: Invest in Kids as a communications associate. My daily endeavors involve media monitoring, clip filing, assisting with national and state press events, video editing and “fighting the good fight” to encourage social media efforts.
