In the summer of 2009 I earned a fellowship through the Kaiser Family Foundation to report on health issues in New Orleans. I worked as a reporter for the Times-Picayune on the city desk and covered a variety topics from education to weather. My main focus was to file heath stories, but I also had several opportunities to cover a variety of beats. Below are some links to some of my favorite stories out of the 27 bylines I produced over the summer. Ignore the misprinted bylines on NOLA.com– I reported and wrote all of these stories but the T-P has an error in its website.
– This is the longest enterprise story that I worked on for four weeks while I was interning. I was able to do interviews in Spanish which was really fun.
