Hi! I'm Lindsay, a Macalester College graduate and award-winning newspaper reporter.
I'm currently a reporter with the Morning Call, tackling the urban affairs beat with a focus on Allentown and Bethlehem. I report a combination of daily turnaround interest stories with deep dives on city issues like gentrification, police hiring and American Rescue Plan spending. My expertise covering political issues has earned me the assignment covering the Lehigh Valley's congressional election, one of the most closely watched races in the country.
Previously I was an intern with the Pennsylvania Legislative Correspondents Association, where I cover the Pennsylvania state legislature in 2-week rotations with PA outlets like the Allentown Morning Call, Spotlight PA and the Pennsylvania Capital-Star.
I spent summer 2020 at Delaware Online as a Reese Cleghorn Intern, covering higher education, breaking news, and business. My story 'I am going to be screwed': Unemployed Delawareans face loss of federal benefits won first place in the Delaware Press Association Communications Awards in the collegiate category and second place in the national NFPW awards competition.
In college, I worked my way from staff reporter to Editor-in-Chief of the Mac Weekly over the course of four years. My college My reporting has been recognized by the Associated Collegiate Press in the Best of the Midwest conference, earning two best of show honors.
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.
