As for a personal introduction: I am a semi-recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest, who loves reading and exploring. My hometown is the 901, AKA Memphis, Tennessee. Go Grizzlies! I moved to Seattle three years ago for a job in journalism and have been sharing stories ever since.
I love working in Washington. The political landscape, tech boom, and geological features of the Evergreen State provides endless questions for a curious journalist. But recently, I’ve decided to try something a little different.
When not researching or planning a project, you’ll find me somewhere in the mountains. Through my outdoor adventures in Western Washington came a renewed interest in sustainability, conservancy, and science.
So I’ve taken a job as Social Media Manager for the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. I work with the people and projects in DNR to provide emergency wildfire information, showcase our recreational opportunities, educate the public on our forests, and share information about earthquake and landslide hazards — to list a a few. If you have story ideas, get in touch with me!
