Durango Herald


Durango Herald is a daily newspaper in Southwest Colorado, La Plata County. Through the School of Communication’s Dean’s Internship Program, I have the opportunity to act as DC correspondent and provide a local angle to stories from Capitol Hill.

With the 2014 Midterm Election coming up, this is an interesting time to be writing on the Hill. I am thrilled for this opportunity. If  you have any questions about my work, don’t hesitate to reach out!
