I am an education reporter and freelance writer based in Social Circle, Ga. Primarily, I work full-time at the Rockdale Citizen and the Newton Citizen newspapers covering public and private schools and area post-secondary institutions. I also enjoy writing features, profiles and other articles for publications in Georgia and Web sites like eHow.com and LiveStrong.com.
An award-winningjournalist, I have experience writing about students, government, music, travel, art, business, dining, profiles and general interest articles. In addition to writing, I especially enjoy editing, photography, blogging and Web design.
I am a graduate of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia in Athens, where I majored in telecommunication arts (writing focus) and minored in English. During my time at the University of Georgia, I spent most of my time as entertainment editor at The Red & Black, an independent, student-run daily newspaper. I also held various positions in writing, copy editing, page design, blogging and photography at The Red & Black.
Also while in Athens, I wrote and copy edited for UGAzine,interned for Southern Distinction magazine and assisted with other area newspapers and newsletters before I graduated. Additionally, I took various Web design and English classes.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my husband, attending concerts with my friends, reading and playing with my cats and dog.
