Through hundreds of public records requests and dogged reporting, she's broken many stories including... - that people accused of loitering and panhandling in Wilmington sometimes get no-contact orders that banish them from the entire city - how a construction training program funded by the Delaware Department of Labor used questionable labor practices and allegedly benefitted from unpaid work - that Muslim children were asked to exit a public pool because a pool manager said their garb violated a "policy" that did not actually exist.
Before that, she worked at The Baltimore Sun in an internship honoring Mary J. Corey, the first woman to lead the Sun newsroom. For the Sun, she profiled half of the 45 victims of Baltimore's deadliest month as part of an award-winning multimedia project.
