I am an award-winning journalist with more than a decade of experience covering criminal justice issues.
My body of work shows a zeal for holding government accountable — both the officials and the institutions that shield them — and a drive to protect the powerless by making sure their voices are heard. I also have experience covering politics, municipal government, education and environmental issues.
I have consistently been recognized among the top in my field.
Included in my achievements:
- Named second in the nation for daily news reporting in 2010 by Suburban Newspapers of America.
- Named "Reporter of the Year" for the St. Louis region by Riverfront Times in 2014
- Honored in 2017 with the Woodward-Bernstein award, given by the Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to journalists who exhibit exceptional cases of "courageous and persistent news or media reporting on areas that touch our criminal justice system."
