Hi! I'm Lindsay and I'm a journalist and a senior at Macalester College. I've been immersed in journalism since my first day at Macalester, and I've risen from staff writer to editor-in-chief at the Mac Weekly.
As a Mac Weekly editor, I facilitated the shift to a digital-first strategy that greatly increased our online engagement. I grew The Mac Weekly's Twitter following by 25% by introducing live twitter coverage and daily scheduled posts in spring 2019. In fall 2020 as editor-in-chief, I put together a team to launch the first Mac Weekly newsletter, which gained over 400 subscribers in its first week.
My reporting has been recognized by the Associated College Press in the Best of the Midwest conference, earning two best of show honors.
I've completed several journalism internships. Most recently, I spent summer 2020 at Delaware Online/The News Journal as a Reese Cleghorn Intern, covering higher education, breaking news and business. I landed on the front page several times over the summer.
Writing, editing and digital strategy are my strengths, and my passion lies in investigative reporting. I hope to pursue a career as an investigative journalist holding power to account.
