She is a graduate of the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University.
Her first arrest occurred during the early morning hours of November 3, 2011, during an attempted building occupation following the 2011 Oakland General Strike. At the time, she was carrying an Alternet press pass, but no government-issued press credentials. After her arrest, the Society of Professional Journalists sent a letter to the Oakland Police Department condemning the arrest.
Her second arrest occurred during a kettle at an Occupy Oakland event. This time, she carried an active press credential from the Freelancers' Guild, as well as a recently expired press credential issued by the Oakland Police Department.
