Chloe has been a part of many journalism projects and has had the opportunity to write a masters thesis.
“Tracking Kern County Pot”
At 23ABC in Bakersfield, one of Chloe’s beats was the marijuana industry during a time where the industry was changing — right before it was fully legalized for sale and use in 2017. She branded her stories under the “Tracking Kern County Pot” brand — completing over a dozen pieces following changing laws, illegal activity, and innovative pot businesses throughout Kern County.

E.W. Scripps In-Depth National Coverage of Toys-R-Us Closing
Chloe was part of a group of journalists across the nation who worked on in-depth coverage on the closing of Toys-R-Us. Her piece was published across all Scripps-owned websites and aired on many of the 33 local news stations the company owns. See the full piece here.
“The Kern River: An Inside Look”
Chloe and another reporter at 23ABC put together a week-long series on the Kern River in the summer of 2017. It was one of the busiest years for first responders along the river, one of the deadliest in history for drownings, and one of the most lucrative years for local river businesses. She documented all angles of the river in a four-part series — which ended with an interactive Facebook Live where the audience could engage with the pieces and the reporters involved.
