"COVID-19 has greatly impacted my job as a Senior Editor/ Producer at CNN. Currently, I work with our Special Projects teams. I am responsible for handling projects from inception to completion, producing, and editing the content you see on-air. A very enjoyable part of my job is directing shoots in the field and in the studio. But due to the pandemic, all of my shoots were canceled, and my workflow shifted in order to help create COVID-19 focused content. I've covered many COVID-19 stories, from an interview with Alicia Keys about her new song “Good Job,” to healthcare workers on the frontlines, to families having to say goodbye to loved ones."

After graduating from college, I worked at MTV on a reality show. Next, I worked for a post-production house that specialized in commercials, films and music videos. There, I got to work on a Super Bowl ad, and I composited and created graphics on music videos for Gwen Stefani, Rihanna, and Alicia Keys.  

Food Network was one of my favorite places to work. And yes I got to eat a lot of amazing food, especially when Iron Chef was shooting. I fell in love with the culinary space and to enhance my knowledge base, I attended culinary school at the École Ritz Escoffier, in Paris, France.

After Food Network, I got the opportunity to head up a brand new video division at IMG. One of the best parts was getting to work with Marvel and help launch The Avengers and Man of Steel movies. From IMG, I was recruited by CNN, as a Senior Editor/Producer, working on promos and documentaries.
