While at Spectrum News, she worked on multiple in-depth series that included an exclusive interview with a man on death row whose case inspired state legislators to work to change the law, a deep dive into policing in Cleveland and Cincinnati, and an exclusive interview with a wrongfully convicted teen who was released from prison after a prosecutor fought to prove his innocence. Her reporting also took her to Paulsboro, New Jersey where a train carrying vinyl chloride derailed in 2012.
