Denver is home, where my family, dog and beautiful mountains support and inspire me. Raised by teachers of history and english, and growing alongside an art and sociology obsessed sister, I feel Sojourners is a fitting place to end up.
I studied magazine writing and dabbled in radio producing at the University of Missouri. I value what I learned there in multicultural courses, in news rooms and in the community, and in small groups and worship teams. Before moving to D.C., I spent time back in Denver working at a local, public access radio/TV station. I learned about the power of media in the hands of the people; how multimedia platforms can build communities and bring forth action.
I also believe in the power of words, grace, good food and dance. I look forward to engaging more with stories involving refugees and immigrants, public health and religion. While at Sojourners, I pray to better understand love in action and the social justice modeled by Jesus. A mission of grace can feel unfair and uncertain. I need help to hold love for all people.
