She has previously slaved for the Targum as a Staff Photographer, Social Media Editor and Online Editor, becoming a regional winner for her news photography. Her likes include Nightwing, Chipotle, the color red, Mary Ellen Cagnassola and the satisfying feeling of removing your bra at the end of a long day.
