A native of Bozeman, MT, she left the mountainous West to attend Vassar College on the East Coast, where she completed a B.A. in Geography. She attended the Salt Institute of Documentary Studies in Portland, ME for photography and multimedia production, and developed a creative approach and strong foundation for her documentary work. She is a 2011 alum of the Maine Media Workshops.
Most recently, she worked as a producer for Spotify/Gimlet's weekly history show called Not Past It.

In 2018, she was awarded a SPJ NorCal Award for her half-hour long documentary, "Will the Water Come," about a town in California's Central Valley that was hit hard by six years of drought. This was part of her Dreams of Dust project, a multimedia series that documents stories of water scarcity and climate migration in California’s Central Valley. A shorter version of this documentary aired on Marketplace. She recently finished the second documentary in this series, "The Town that Refuses to Die."
