I am an education reporter and freelance writer based in Social Circle, Ga. I enjoy writing both news and feature articles for various publications in Georgia and elsewhere. I work as a full-time education reporter at the Rockdale Citizen and the Newton Citizen newspapers. I have experience writing about students, meetings, music, travel, art, business, dining, profiles and general interest articles. I am a graduate of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia, where I majored in telecommunication arts (writing focus) and minored in English. During my time at the University of Georgia, I was the variety and Out & About 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 at the University, I wrote and copy edited for UGAzine and took various Web design and English classes. Additionally, I interned for Southern Distinction magazine and other area newspapers and newsletters. In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my husband, attending concerts with my friends, reading and playing with my cats and dog.
