A 2012 Truman State University graduate and a native of St. Louis, I came to the Jefferson City News Tribune in 2014 as the assistant design editor and was named design editor three years later.
In addition to my duties with the daily newspaper, for most of 2020, I served as art director and designer of HER Magazine under editor Madeleine Leroux. As she takes on a new role with the News Tribune, I’m excited to continue the magazine’s tradition of telling local stories that impact the women of Mid-Missouri.
Outside of work, I can be found exploring Missouri’s state parks and hiking trails — whether by foot or bicycle or alongside a tent and campfire, s’more in hand — with my husband, David. I also spend a good deal of time in the kitchen, elbow deep in flour and butter, pretending I’m a star baker worthy of a Paul Hollywood handshake on “The Great British Bake Off.”
As HER Magazine editor, I’m grateful to be part of a dedicated staff — from advertising, to reporting and photography — working together to share your stories and highlight what makes Mid-Missouri such an excellent community.
