She joined Newsday as an news-side intern on the Long Island desk that summer and became a part of High School sports department later that year. She has a varied journalistic background, having covered everything from the Brooklyn Supreme Court to girls gymnastics and back again for various outlets, including the Daily News. Her preference, though, remains baseball and soccer. She has yet to master not getting lost in Long Island while on the way to games.
