Home, Garden, Food and Real Estate Editor
I edit the At Home, Flavor and Home & Real Estate sections of The Hartford Courant and increasingly write for the sections as well as for my home and gardening blog, CT DIGS, at www.courant.com/ctdigs.
I've worked at The Hartford Courant since 1995 -- as an editor in the newsroom the first 12 years, overseeing coverage of courts, gambling, health care, biomedical research, politics, education, religion and environment. A few years ago I shifted to features and now edit three weekly sections -- At Home, Home & Real Estate and Flavor. Over the course of my career, I've worked at five daily newspapers. At three I wrote editorials and edited opinion pages. Earlier as a reporter I covered fashion, consumer affairs, courts, education, business and agriculture -- an eclectic mix, to say the least. I also wrote for a public TV show about displaced homemakers (in New Orleans), hosted a radio show about opera, helped start a professional theater, worked in PR, co-founded a fashion news service, headlined a jazz group, taught flute lessons and wrote book jacket copy for Oxford University Press.
