On weekends during the school year, you will find me on the sidelines of high school games throughout Massachusetts for the Boston Herald. I cover football, gymnastics, swimming, field hockey, volleyball, track, basketball, hockey and tennis.
I am the women’s hockey correspondent for Giant Sports Associates’ college hockey properties, contributing interviews for Inside Hockey East and Inside ECAC Hockey. For two years, I was on the women’s college hockey beat for New England Hockey Journal, including covering several 2014 US and Canadian Olympic team members while they played for American colleges. I covered the 2013 Women’s Frozen Four for both the Hockey Journal and the Herald.
I have covered the 2013 and 2014 U.S. Gymnastics Championships for several publications, including the Herald, Rochester, NY Democrat and Chronicle and Fort-Myers, FL News-Press. In 2014, I covered the U.S. Figure Skating Championships (an Olympic Team selection event) for the Herald, L.I. Newsday and BU Today. I wrote Olympic themed features for the Herald leading up to the Sochi Games.
My 2013 profile of a deployed Army assistant coach for College Baseball Daily was nationally recognized by the College Baseball Foundation. You may have also seen my work in Lacrosse Magazine, BU Today, BostonLax.net, SBNation Boston, and Inside Lacrosse. My clips are available here. I have been a guest on the North Shore Sports Desk on North Shore 104.9 and several podcasts.
Unlike many sports writers, I hold a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration. Most of my days are spent managing communications and assisting seven Deans and a Chief of Staff in a Dean of Students office. I have managed social media in that environment for eight years, and give presentations and plan projects involving a variety of social media and technology topics. One of my areas of expertise is in college and university crisis management on social media.
