My current position entails managing media relations for several hospital departments, including Neurology, Neurosurgery, Imaging/Radiology, Sports Medicine and Orthopedics. My daily responsibilities include writing news stories for internal hospital publications, scheduling interviews between our experts and reporters, coordinating various video shoots, pitching stories to local and national news outlets, writing hospital announcements during various emergencies (snowstorms, MBTA shutdowns, etc.), shooting/editing/producing videos for hospital events, and handing media requests for breaking news stories pertaining to the hospital.
Prior to hopping on board at MGH, I worked as a police reporter for The Salem News where I wrote the paper’s police logs and breaking news stories occurring on the north shore.
I worked for the Boston Globe before my stint at The Salem News, reporting the news for cities and towns north of Boston, including Marblehead, Salem, Peabody, Beverly, Malden and Melrose. I covered everything from local politics, special events, crime, issues within various committees, human interest pieces and more. In addition to writing and cultivating my own story ideas, I also shot and edited videos.
I spent two life-changing years at Emerson College, where I graduated with a master’s degree in print and multimedia journalism in 2013. I also earned my bachelor’s degree in journalism, with a minor in Spanish, from the University of New Hampshire (Go Wildcats!).
Off the clock I enjoy yoga, running, pizza, and a good crime or fantasy novel.
