Welcome to my personal website, where I will post regular updates on issues related to mental health and mental illness. I plan on writing about trending stories here in Iowa and across the county related to these topics. I will also post updates about my work with the National Alliance on Mental Illness Iowa, with whom I am currently interning. Occasionally, I may also offer my thoughts on current events, especially as they relate to developments in the media and politics.
Over the past year, mental health and well-being has become a topic of particular interest to me, as I have researched and reported on it in both public relations and journalistic capacities. My previous work and personal experiences have impressed upon me the importance of understanding how our mental health impacts our daily lives and having candid conversations about mental health issues that affect so many people.
