farewellI am a journalist living and working in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

As a member of The Fayetteville Observer’s public life team, I cover health, poverty and community issues in the city of Fayetteville and Cumberland County.

Before coming to Fayetteville, I worked for The Anniston Star in Anniston, Alabama. While there, I covered local government and community life in the cities of Anniston and Jacksonville and higher education issues relating to Jacksonville State University.

I got my start as a reporter covering the town and village of Mamaroneck for The Sound & Town Report, a community weekly in suburban New York. I also served as webmaster for the newspaper’s parent company, Home Town Media Group, which publishes five newspapers in Westchester County. Before becoming a reporter, I worked in the maze of offices under the floor of Madison Square Garden as as an assistant web editor for MSG.com.

As a student at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, I focused on feature writing, news editing, photojournalism and education reporting.

Before I definitively decided journalism was the career for me, I studied literature and writing at Sarah Lawrence College.

I grew up in Sneads, Florida, a Panhandle town with one caution light.
