My Next Adventure

My Next Adventure

After six years within the same company and most recently launching a national digital news platform, I’m thrilled to be making a career pivot to keep building things as a Project Manager at 10up!

10up is a world-class digital agency with clients like Politico, FiveThirtyEight, BBC America, TIME, ESPN, Google, and even the latest for President Biden.

In my professional experiences, I’ve found launching projects and problem-solving are what I enjoy the most. At the same time, I came to realize that journalism is a very mentally draining career. I needed a change and fell into project management by accident, but I couldn’t be more excited to take on this new adventure!

I’ll be staying in Chicago. 10up is a distributed company with a global team. I start on Monday and already feel so welcomed!

Finally, I have to say it was an honor to work at WGN and launch NewsNation. We’ve had some very turbulent waters in recent months. I love my colleagues and wish nothing but the best. They’re working hard to keep the mission of unbiased cable news a reality.

While walking out of a newsroom is bittersweet, I can say that deleting all the news apps off my phone, turning off Dataminr and Twitter alerts, and unplugging from the information overload is already feeling very blissful. I may take a break from social media, too, for a little bit.
