Senior director, News
S&P Global Market Intelligence

I believe I can help bring new ideas and creativity to the challenges and pressures facing today’s newsrooms. I love solving tough problems, and would be honored to collaborate with the SABEW board to bring thoughtful, relevant ideas to help shape the future of our newsrooms.

As news director at SNL Financial, now part of McGraw Hill Financial’s S&P Global Market Intelligence, I have helped expand our newsroom from a small, mostly US-based operation to a 300+ team of full-time journalists and freelancers around the world.

This rapid (and ongoing!) expansion would not have been possible without embracing mentorship and educational opportunities for our staff, employing journalists in lower-cost locations and utilizing new technology. All the while, upholding high journalism standards has remained paramount in our newsroom. We recently got a shoutout from the Columbia Journalism Review for our coverage of failing insurance co-ops. CJR’s Trudy Lieberman called our 5,000-word report “one of the best Obamacare stories I’ve seen.”

Running a successful global newsroom and bringing a diverse team together in a collaborative, collegial environment has been an incredibly rewarding job. I’d love to bring this experience to the SABEW community, whether it’s offering up nuts-and-bolts business journalism workshops or reviewing the latest available technology for newsrooms. I’m truly grateful to be considered for the SABEW board, and appreciate this opportunity.
