Introduction: New general assignment reporter
For the past eight months, I have been freelancing at Heritage, mainly The Chelsea Standard and Dexter Leader. I've spent time covering a wide range of events, from township and city council meetings to last summer's black bear sightings.
Before coming to Heritage, I worked at The Eastern Echo, while I studied toward my journalism degree at Eastern Michigan University. There, I spent time as a news writer and copy editor, and ended my 3.5-year stint there as chief copy editor before graduating last April.
Although I've lived in Washtenaw County for almost five years now, I am most familiar with Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor. Therefore, I am really looking forward to getting to know the other communities and people that make up the county.
Feel free to contact me with any ideas or suggestions, and I look forward to meeting you all!
