I’m a native North Carolinian who has been pulled toward the water ever since I left my hometown of Burlington at age 18. I graduated from East Carolina University, moved directly to Nags Head and have never considered leaving. I’ve been working as a writer and an editor for the last 25 years, and I’ve worked with North Brunswick Magazine and South Brunswick Magazine since their beginnings. Though I don’t live in Brunswick County, I feel like I really know it editing these publications for the last 10 years. When I’m not working, I am practicing or teaching yoga or doing something outside — running half-marathons, swimming in the ocean, paddleboarding on the sound, gardening with my husband or trying to keep up with my two kids.
