I’m a writer, editor and email marketer living in Charlotte, N.C. I graduated from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at UNC Chapel Hill in 2009 and started working at The Charlotte Observer soon after.
After nearly six years of covering high school sports for the newspaper, I became editor of CharlotteFive – a website and email newsletter geared toward young professionals – in May 2015. The newsletter grew from 2,000 to 20,000 subscribers under my leadership, and the website attracted nearly 1 million page views per month by the end of my tenure. I also helped launch and co-hosted the Observer’s CharlotteFive Podcast for about two years before leaving the Observer in October 2017.
I am currently the email campaign manager at Compass Group USA, the leading foodservice and support services company, where I leverage my passion for storytelling to help brands grow through email marketing.
