I'm a freelance journalist based in Lawrence, KS. I'm often covering food, drink, and the hospitality industry, but my range of work also includes health, beauty, parenting, and horticulture. Look for my Bar Kit and Classic Comfort Food series' in The Daily Beast's Half Full, or check out my Midwestern city wine guides, historical deep dives, and more on Wine Enthusiast.
Before moving back to my home state, I lived in New York where I held editorial positions at Supercall.com, Wine Enthusiast, Liquor.com, SHAPE, and Women's Health. My work can also be found in Eater, Thrillist, Vinepair, and Women's Health, among other publications.
I've served as a spirits judge for the American Craft Spirits Association and was a contributor to The Oxford Companion to Spirits and Cocktails, published in 2021. I'm also working toward my Horticultural Therapist certification through the New York Botanical Garden.
