Hello! My name is Samantha, and I'm a state government reporter for the Miami Herald and Tampa Bay Times’ Tallahassee bureau.
I am a recent graduate of Boston University, where I majored in journalism (but mostly at the Daily Free Press).
My experience covering state government started at the Lowell Sun, but I’ve also spent time covering crime and oddities at the Miami Herald and general news at The Boston Globe. At the Globe, my reporting led to the addition of ambulances in underserved communities and sparked an investigation into discrimination in the Tufts University Greek life system.
I most recently interned at The Dallas Morning News, where I wrote about day-to-day mischief and mayhem as well as enterprise stories and occasional features. My reporting at the Morning News led to a mass hiring of employees to staff driver’s license centers infamous for unbearable wait times.
