*Mama * Editor * Lover of Coffee * Hello and welcome to my author page! I am the Digital Managing Editor for the Evansville and Owensboro markets. I have been in media in the area since 2004 and I love digging out the gems of life for you to enjoy! Every day is truly a new adventure in this job - and we never encounter the same story twice. I enjoy writing about my parenting adventures, how to have a healthy lifestyle, local topics, and most recently - outdoor adventures. My family and I have taken up camping - and when I say "camping," I actually mean "glamping." My mom bought a family camper a couple of years ago that's equipped with a full kitchen, queen size bed, and bathroom because roughin' it just doesn't sound appealing to my very 'extra' clan. We have had the best time exploring all of the best camp spots around the region and letting the kids feel the unbridled joy that only the outdoors can provide. I love taking you all on that journey with me! My daughter and I also share a passion for horses. I grew up in the saddle and nothing makes my heart happier than seeing her develop as an equestrian. As the editor of this page, I'm always up for a good pun, discussion about the proper use of an apostrophe, or a funny joke about the grammar police. I'm also happy to take your feedback, questions, or concerns. Hope to hear from you soon!
