The Academy Award-winning journalist’s work runs the gamut from documentary film and investigative reporting to photojournalism. Her work focuses on social injustices and violent conflict in the U.S. and abroad. Among her many projects, she has covered the international refugee crisis and intermarriage in post-genocide Rwanda. She is currently working on a feature documentary on child assault in America.

Elon is one of the Pulitzer Center’s more than 30 Campus Consortium partners, an educational initiative that brings Pulitzer Center staff and journalists to Elon’s campus twice a year. With Elon’s membership in the consortium, students have the opportunity to work with the center on developing international reporting projects, which have been featured on the center’s website and can be disseminated through media partners.
