As an Investigative Reporter and Producer at ABC15, I uncovered chronic problems in the regulation of ammonium nitrate in Arizona, mapped the danger zones surrounding chemical facilities in the state, tracked systemic failures in the reporting of arson, and followed families battling the state's broken mental health care system.
