j o u r n a l i s t 

I'm a reporter for KFF Health News, where I write stories focused on the health of Latinos and about policies at the intersection of health and immigration. 

Before, I was a health investigative reporter at Searchlight New Mexico, where I write stories about health policies affecting the well-being of children, women, and families in the state and its borders. 

I've written enterprise and investigative stories of issues affecting vulnerable communities, including migrant workers and asylum seekers. I was a Bradlee Fellow and intern and The Washington Post where I covered education, local government and politics in the Washington D.C. region. 

At the Howard Center for Investigative Journalism, I contributed as an investigative reporter to the award-winning investigations "Printing Hate," "Essential and Expose," and "Mega Billions: The Great Lottery Wealth Transfer."

My writing has been featured in The Washington Post, The Associated Press, The Guardian, Time Magazine, Searchlight New Mexico, The Baltimore Brew, Capital News Service, and El Tiempo Latino.
