I have a passion for sports. My background is in newspaper writing, reporting and editing.
I graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in journalism and I have covered local high school, college and professional sports for the past three years.
Prior to becoming a sports reporter, I was a long-time copy editor for The Grand Rapids Press. I was an editor in the sports department for 10 years and the news desk for three.
I also am taking courses at Grand Valley State University in public relations and media relations.
