I'm currently senior manager of digital content for Cox Media Group, where I work with our digital teams in newsrooms across the U.S. to set digital strategies and train them on best practices.
My career has been a series of pivots that has helped me build a unique and diverse skillset. I was previously a social media analyst for Cox's TV group, executive producer of social media at WFTV (ABC) Channel 9 in Orlando, Fla., and vice president of media and communications for former Philadelphia 76ers president Pat Croce.
They say once a journalist, always a journalist, and if you ask, I'll tell you my heart bleeds ink. I'm an award-winning former staff writer at The Daytona Beach News-Journal where I covered everything from business and youth affairs to local government. My freelance articles have been published in Vox, Huffington Post, MSNBC's Today Books, Orlando Sentinel, SHE and Caribbean Beat magazines. I've also edited a few of New York Times bestseller Croce's books on piracy.
I'm a proud HBCU grad, with a Bachelor's degree in public relations and advertising from Bethune-Cookman University, where I've also taught as an adjunct professor of communication graphics. I hold a Master's degree in mass communications with a focus on social persuasion and technology from the University of Central Florida.
I live in Atlanta, Ga., with with husband Sean (a very talented photographer) and our two kids.
