I have worked at Areawide for seven years, including in composing as a graphic designer before becoming the full time Sharp County reporter in 2009, where I enjoyed working in the community where I grew up and spent the majority of my life.
In 2013, I took over the editor position and still cover events in Sharp and Fulton Counties and produce our three newspapers and Avenues magazine. I love the challenges and rewards that come with working for a small hometown newspaper. I have lived in the Sharp and Fulton County area my entire life and grown to love the people who live here, given their many quirks. While attending college at ASU, I was hired at Areawide Media as a graphic designer and was finally able to get paid for doing what I love. Soon after, my former editor pulled me into the News department where I have been since.
