I’m Sam Zern, a journalist currently located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I graduated this May from Vanderbilt University with a degree in education policy and sociology, both of which I chose to study to help further my understanding of the types of issues I want to report on.

My heart belongs to local news, and I’ve been fortunate to work for publications in my hometown and college town. When I’m not working, I (like many people during quarantine) have picked up a baking habit and a love for neighborhood exploring.
