My Work

I have been passionate about writing since college and am lucky to be able to meet so many people and tell their stories. With over 20 years of experience, I’ve written on a variety of topics and still get excited to see my name in print or get a front page story!

I am currently writing for the following publications:

 

I was fortunate to join Starnes Publishing in April 2015 as a freelance journalist. Of their seven publications, I do most of my writing for 280 Living and the Cahaba Sun, but also write for their other papers including Iron City Ink, Vestavia Voice, Homewood Star, Hoover Sun, Village Living.

In addition, I also do writing for special advertising sections and magazines, including the upcoming Birmingham City Guide, 205 Outdoors and the Hoover Chamber Magazine.

The majority of my stories are on business openings, profiles on those making an impact in their community and event previews. I also compile/edit calendars for the papers. You can click on the name of the publications above for links to my articles in each one.

In January 2018, I began writing for the Chelsea Central Podcast. I write several articles each month focusing on the community where I live, from new businesses, to highlighting people in the community and happenings in the schools, you can access all of my articles here.

You can also listen to my guest appearance on the podcast here, where I discussed life hacks for busy moms and a whole lot more!

In March 2018, I was hired as the Communications Manager for Vertical Solutions Media. In this position, I do mostly writing, editing and PR.

I tried a whole new thing when I was contracted in August 2018 to write for the 2019 issue of Alabama Weddings Magazine. It was a fun transition to writing about weddings, vendors and styled photo shoots. The issue will hit newsstands in December, and I’m staying on with the magazine to handle their social media accounts!
