Profession: I am the Senior Style & Home Editor for Country Living Magazine. I spend most of my days working with an amazing group of creatives to bring the pages of our magazine to life. If I’m not in the photo studio, I’m probably off writing somewhere quiet with a cup of hibiscus tea. Print media and I have had a long love affair and I consider myself lucky to be continuing a centuries-old tradition. It also doesn’t hurt that I surround myself with beautiful imagery all day, every day.
I’ve been blessed to participate in many industry events including panels, mentorship programs, Instagram takeovers, and editorial features. None of that would have been possible without the amazing education I received at Grady.

Memory while in school: Having a ball with my Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority sisters at all of the spring fraternity parties. What fun those were!

Tailgate Recipe: My grandmother’s Chex Mix. The secret is lots and lots of butter.
