I am the Iowa City and Johnson County government reporter for The Gazette. One of my favorite parts about my job is that I’m constantly learning something new and then I get to share that information with readers. Through my coverage, I hope to make it easier for readers to understand how local government works. When I’m not reporting, I enjoy hiking, spending time outside, reading and finding new restaurants to try.
