While pursing my undergraduate degree in Journalism at Elon University, I was the Features Editor of the student news organization, The Pendulum. As the Features Editor, I brainstormed story ideas on human-interest topics, investigative pieces, and events in the Elon community, corresponded with reporters daily and helped them to develop stories and corresponded with photo editors, design editors and graphics editors to create effective layouts. I also wrote human-interest stories, profiles and investigative pieces and interviewed students, professors, musicians, and faculty and local government officials, as well as visiting speakers and performers and conducted background research and fact-checking for articles, designed pages, copy edited and managed online content.

Here are a few of my work samples from my time at The Pendulum.

During my time as Features Editor, I also started The Pendulum Wellness Blog. As a Pilates a Yoga instructor and enthusiast, I am passionate about health and wellness, so I wanted to contribute my knowledge to the Pendulum in the form of an informal, conversational blog. Since graduating from Elon, I have continued my pursuits in health and wellness blogging with my personal health journey on my personal blog.
