Although I’ve only been working at the Imperial Valley Press about five months now, it was relatively easy to pinpoint the most significant story I’ve written in that time: the rollout of Medi-Cal Managed Care’s two plans for Imperial Valley residents. 

Both Molina Healthcare of California and California Health and Wellness had major flaws in how their information was presented to the 35,000 affected community members, and all the missing information and misinformation made it extremely difficult for anyone to properly choose a healthcare plan.

As the County beat reporter, I cover the Board of Supervisors and the city councils for El Centro and Imperial, as well as health issues and community events. I received a Master's degree in Specialized Journalism from USC Annenberg in 2013.
