Senior / Broadcast Journalism and Management Information Systems

As a senior at Penn State, I’ve hosted and anchored more than ten hours of live television, including newscasts, roundtable discussions and webcasts for the nation’s largest homecoming parade and largest student-run philanthropy in the world. The reporter in me lives for writing, shooting and editing my own stories with a definite soft spot for human interest stories and features.

On top of my journalism major, I am also a dual major in management information systems with a graduation date of May 2014. I then plan on entering the journalism field as an on-air reporter.
