As the digital landscape continues to evolve in the journalism profession, it’s crucial that the NABJ board is well represented with journalists that have the professional online experience. I’ve been working in the digital space for more than 10 years at a wide variety of outlets (AOL, Viacom, Hearst, Yahoo) and I feel I’m the best candidate to lead the newly restructured Region IV. I also represent an age demographic that sometimes gets overlooked on a national level. With your support, I will ensure that recent graduates and young professionals have more of a voice at the NABJ table.
