Brief Biography

There's nothing I love more than telling a good story. For more than six years, I did my storytelling on television as a local news reporter and anchor. Now, I tell stories through social media for the university. I'm a North Carolina native and have lived on the state's coast, in the Triangle-area and for several years now, the Triad. Know of a great story in the Elon community? Let me know! I'd love to tweet it, post it and 'gram it.
