Covering the Pros

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks

While with the Arizona Republic for the summer, I attended more than 15 home games at Chase Field. I mainly wrote online sidebars, but had a longer feature on players and their gloves and assisted with the notebook.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals

I attended Cards Fan Fest, assisted the beat writers at training camp and wrote short features on players as well as online sidebars. For the tablet, I compiled five off-the-field questions with some players and longer question-and-answer conversations with others.

NFL: Buffalo Bills

As the digital media and marketing intern during the team’s 2012 training camp I assisted with interviews for print stories and wrote scripts for the “Off the field” video segments with Bills players, which I occasionally also filmed. I worked with Hannah Buehler on most of these, including the Rookie Diaries with No. 1 pick Stephon Gilmore.

WNBA: Phoenix Mercury

When I covered the Mercury, I was the only Republic reporter at games and wrote the main story under tight deadlines. I broke the story that the Mercury fired their head coach Corey Gaines and also covered new coach Russ Pennell’s first game the next night.

NHL: Phoenix Coyotes

I attended the three-day developmental camp in July and wrote two player features.
