My parents like to say that my journalism career began when I won a writing contest in third grade for describing the most delicious sandwich. I still argue that I just really liked sandwiches back then. But they could have been on to something.
In October 2012, I left my job as a columnist, blogger and business reporter at the Cincinnati Enquirer (in my hometown), got married and moved to Raleigh, N.C. to be with my new husband. It's a time of great change, adventure and excitement, and I'm filling it up with freelance work from national and local media organizations focused on startups and business.
Over seven prior years as a Cincinnati journalist, I covered lots of stuff, but mostly startups and entrepreneurship, retail, urban development and real estate. In October 2011, I started a micro-site on Cincinnati.com called EnterChange, featuring and tracking up-and-coming entrepreneurs and businesses, and the organizations that support them. My EnterChange columns ran every weekend in Business.
I keep life fun with sports, fashion, biking, mission work and traveling, hanging with my husband and giving my time to the organizations that have contributed to the person I am today.
