My Role

I'm a health, business and real estate reporter; a health blogger; and a health Web chat producer who also dabbles in social media.
My Biography

I joined the Daily Press in 2005. Before that, I was a reporter at the Erie Times-News in Erie, PA. I'm originally from small-town PA, somewhere between Erie and Pittsburgh.
My Interests

I take great delight in simple things: coffee (strong, with a little cream and sugar), baking (don't get me started on Christmas cookies!), traveling, reading, going to the beach, board games, watching sports with my husband (he's a Steelers fan) and participating in Bible studies. I tolerate running and prefer step aerobics. I'm a member of Bethel Temple Church in Hampton, Va.
