News Philosophy

The more you know about your community, the stronger and healthier it can become! That’s why I believe in local news – energizing and empowering a community is valuable. It can lead to meaningful change and a deeper understanding of your neighbors (allowing you to help them overcome the challenges they face, and share in their successes).

Hobbies, Interests & Community Involvement

Let’s lace up those sneakers, throw on some sunscreen, and get outside! Whether it’s hitting the pavement for a jog, strapping on a helmet and biking a new trail, or strolling through southwest Florida’s great outdoors – that’s where I want to be. Another interest? Cats! Don’t ask me about mine unless you’re prepared for a lengthy slideshow.

Education

Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications at The University of North Carolina – Asheville

Master’s degree in Elementary Education at the University of Maryland – College Park
