Oregon Media Production Association | Profiles & Interviews

My journalism background shaped me into an adept interviewer capable of developing interesting profiles to highlight and engage community members.

In addition to conducting engaging interviews, I'm a diligent fact-checker who can identify the pieces of a story that require confirmation or additional sources. Some of my interview subjects have included: nonprofit board members, company leadership, and association members.
