I grew up in Southern Louisiana, traveled up the Mississippi for College, and then made my way to D.C. to begin my career in media. After participating in the '08 election war room at Media Matters, I made the shift to the West Coast to pursue a joint J.D./Ph.D. at Stanford. When I'm not in the library, I love hitting the dog park with my dog, cooking with my husband, and cross-traning.
