She studied writing at the University of Michigan, and then taught high school writing and literature for four years before returning to study journalism at Medill School of Journalism. She trained in public radio at WDET’s Detroit newsroom, and is really excited to be at WMFE covering health and science news with reporter Abe Aboraya.
