Time with TDI: 341/2 years

Work number: (606) 326-2661


A Williamson, West Virginia, native, I have a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in journalism from Marshall University. In addition to my years at The Daily Independent, I worked at The Register-Herald in Beckley, West Virginia, and in radio and magazines.

My job as Lifestyles editor includes writing features, news and editorials, as well as managing Ashland Living, the newspaper’s quarterly magazine.

Always interested in the arts, I enjoy writing people profiles, especially those of local artists. I have been involved with the arts since childhood, singing in choirs, playing instruments in band and studying visual arts.

In addition to art, I enjoy swimming and the company of my cat, Harriet, and dog, Freddie.
