Currently the business reporter for the Centre Daily Times in State College, Pa.. Former writer for the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Newspaper in Rochester, N.Y. I also work on a game-to-game basis with the Rochester Red Wings (AAA affiliate of the Minnesota Twins) in the production department, where I operate camera equipment, replay decks and audio mixers for games broadcasted live on Time Warner Cable, the MLB Network and MiLB.com, and create graphics for scoreboard and television broadcasts.
Originally from the Rochester, N.Y.-area, I moved to Phoenix in the summer of 2005 to attend Arizona State University, where I was a student-athlete on the women's soccer team. As a 2009 graduate of ASU, I received a dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in Journalism and Mass Communication with a concentration in print from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and English with a concentration in literature from the School of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
Before and during college I completed numerous internships in print, media production and public relations work that included ESPN (Phoenix); Bleacher Report and CBS Sports (San Francisco); Greece Post Newspaper (Greece, N.Y.), NextStep Magazine (Victor, N.Y.), Discover Rochester Magazine, WROC-TV 8 and WHAM-TV 13 (Rochester, N.Y.); and College Affair Magazine (Scottsdale, Ariz.). During my time with BR and CBS Sports, I primarily covered NCAA and CIS (Canada) men's ice hockey.
Upon graduation, I landed a job as a crime reporter for Greater Niagara Newspapers in the Buffalo-Niagara Falls, N.Y. area and worked there until September 2011. Shortly after, I completed a month-long fellowship with the New York State Senate as a press advisor for Sen. Greg Ball (R-Brewster). From there, I was brought on to cover local news for the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle newspaper. I pitched story ideas to editors, wrote "Best Bets" and "Food & Drink" articles for the RocFocus section, covered general news and human-interest stories in the Greater Rochester area, and wrote for the OurTowns section of the newspaper, focusing on the Greece and Hilton areas.
I enjoy fishing, reading, ice hockey, playing music, playing tennis, skiing and snowboarding, cooking, golfing and listening to music. I also volunteer with the county 4-H program.
You changed your photo, girl...lol
That's why I didn't recognize you. Damn. But you look gorgeous in that photo there.
Anyway, congrats on all your recent success. I'm definitely going to have to come back and read some of your stuff now that I know who you are again...lol
Also, I felt you might get a kick out of this little piece. It has an important message for everyone. Let me know what you think of it in the comments section.

Are sports heroes really dead? Find out in my latest article whenever you get a moment. Thanks.
Interested in your thoughts on my latest article about the Big Red...
A Story From A True Patriots Fan...check this one out...
Thanks for taking the time to edit my article
I am concerned about the font however, as it seems to drop in size halfway through the article
And then on the second page there is a portion of html code that is visible
Thank you for your edit. I know I make a lot of sentencing and syntax errors. English is my second language and even if I know my english fairly well, I still make the dumbest of mistakes. :)
Thank you again.
Thanks for becoming one of my fans, Britney. I don't know which articles of mine you've read that you like, but most of mine are about expansion in the CFL, NHL, and NFL and the state of hockey in general. Actually there are a lot of articles you could write about being a hockey fan in Phoenix coming from Rochester. The Phoenix franchise is in the worst shape of all NHL teams and is the only one Gary Bettman has been publicly forced to admit is in trouble. Unless new investors appear, the franchise could be contracted or relocated. If it ever was put up for sale, there is a good chance that Jim Balsillie would try to buy it and move it up here to southern Ontario.
I read some of your articles, particularly the ones about Rochester, Buffalo, and Toronto. I've only visited Rochester once, over twenty years ago, going to Club 747. One article, you could write about which I would be interested in is why Rochester, except for lacrosse is content to be minor league. Whenever there is talk about professional sports expansion/relocation, Rochester is never mentioned. Yet the greater Rochester area has over one million people and next door is the Syracuse area which has 700,000. With ten money-losing NHL franchises around, there is never a better chance for Rochester to get a franchise, perhaps even Phoenix itself. But the relocation cities mentioned are usually Kansas City, Houston, Las Vegas, Hamilton, Hartford, and Quebec. Same with the Bills. Why doesn't Rochester consider going after them or try to get regular season games played there like Toronto has? It seems to me that Rochester has the potential to join the big leagues in many sports but nothing is heard on that front. What ambitions do the sports fans in Rochester have?
Thanks for the edit Britney, appreciate it.
