This page has both infographics and Thinglinks that I have created. Please click the top two images to be connected to the portal where you can interact with the Thinglinks. The bottom three are infographics that I did research on and completed this semester.
In the summer of 2016, I made this Thinglink to visually tell a team story on the prevalence of human trafficking in Mid-Missouri. I interviewed activists and survivors who shared their stories then divided the content to develop a shorter story that is interactive and easily shareable.
For this story, my team aimed to display the range of people fighting against the Grain Belt Express across Missouri. Here, residents give an intimate look into their lives and a variety of reasons as to why they stand together against the Grain Belt Express. But on the other hand, the Clean Line Energy company argued their transmission line is to the benefit of the public. As a result, this graphic aims to share their side of the story as well.
In the fall of 2018, I worked on a story about the democratic decline of Poland for Global Journalist. While researching, I learned that a resounding theme in this story was that the decline of Poland's democracy was a result of many factors over time. Yet, there wasn't a single timeline of events in any of the articles or documents I had read. Recognizing the hole in reporting, I built this graphic to display the small steps taken by PiS that over time have had a large impact on the future of the country.
I made this infographic to supplement a story I reported on about dairy farmers in Missouri. The goal was to give an in-depth view of how the gallon of milk in your fridge comes straight from the farm in just 48 hours.
I designed this graphic to show the high ranking factors that have lead to tight residential markets and happy residents in Osage county.
In the fall of 2017, I did a data story on the diversity skills gap in computer science graduates in Missouri. We found that women are 10 times more likely to get a degree in computer science if they have taken a class in high school. However, many rural schools in Mid-Missouri don't offer computer science courses and as a result, fewer students are pursuing this degree in college and even fewer are coming into the workforce for computer science.
