(she/her) b. 1993 Houston, Texas 

I'm a Detroit, Michigan based documentary photographer and I grew up in the American South and Central Appalachia. 

I studied Photojournalism and Sociology at Western Kentucky University and was an international student at the Danish School of Media and Journalism in 2014. Prior to working independently, I interned at The Oregonian, The Roanoke Times, The Flint Journal, The Washington Post and the San Antonio Express-News. 

My work examines economic divestment, gender disparity and the daily life of the American working-class primarily through long-form visual narratives and portraiture. I am currently the president of the Michigan Press Photographers Association and am a member of Women Photograph

I'm available for commission nationally.
