I am a PhD candidate at the University of Minnesota’s Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication. My research interests focus on journalism studies, rural media environments, news audiences, news deserts, social media and its role in journalism and society and the value of news in everyday life. I have research published in peer-reviewed journals Journalism (2), Journalism Studies, Digital Journalism and Journal of Communication Inquiry. Previously, I worked in the journalism industry for more than 20 years, including time as a senior editor at the Houston Chronicle and as a regional editor-in-chief in Central Virginia.
