Media Relations and Journalistic Storytelling
I joined the Office of University Communications at Elon University in August 2007 after working in newspapers for several years. My primary responsibilities are to manage content for E-net, the university's news website, and to assist journalists who need information about the campus community. I contribute to the Magazine of Elon alumni magazine and to the university's social media presence on Facebook and Twitter, and I manage the Elon University Writers Syndicate.
