I am a veteran education/investigative reporter producing award-winning journalism on multiple platforms. I was a lead writer on "Assault on Learning," a series which affected large-scale change and won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. I am Kiplinger Fellow in Public Affairs Journalism and have won multiple other local and national awards. I am a trusted source of education news in Philadelphia - I was named one of the most influential Philadelphians on Twitter by Philadelphia Magazine.
As a staff writer at a major metropolitan daily newspaper, I thrive on challenging deadlines and a mix of long-form journalism and the breaking news that is a constant as a reporter covering the eighth largest school district in the country. I am a frequent speaker on education, social media and the Pulitzer Prize, and am comfortable with television and radio appearances. Not unimportant: kids at schools throughout Philadelphia rate my Career Day presentations as "really fun!"
