I am a photojournalist and writer focusing on Jordan's humanitarian and military response to the conflicts in Syria and Iraq. I currently work as a news editor with Al Bawaba News and accept freelance assignments in the region. I previously lived in Washington, DC, where I worked as a photo editor with AARP. While in DC, I also served as an officer for the Women Photojournalists of Washington (WPOW). I'm a wayward Cajun from Louisiana and can get by in English, French, Arabic, and Turkish. I have received HEFAT training from Global Journalist Security. I'm based in Amman, Jordan, where I live with my husband, his 95-year-old grandfather, and the stray animals that wander into our lives.

I'm represented by ZUMA Press and am a contributor to Getty Images Global Assignment.
