I'm a Durham, NC native and a Public Policy major at Duke University also studying journalism and French. I'm particularly interested in education and family policy.
I love how radio brings stories to life in such an intimate and personal way, and it's always had a place in my life. In my family, cooking and public radio go together like peanut butter and jelly. I'm interested in all corners of the globe, especially France and South Africa, where I've spent time studying and working.
Beyond journalism, I'm a dancer and a huge ballet nerd (that's a thing) and my favorite place to be is a North Carolina beach.
