Welcome to my site! I am a mother, wife, writer and
journalist. Born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, I
ended up at the University of North Carolina Pembroke,
where I earned my BA in Communications in 1996. I
also met my husband, Michael there, and we’ve been
married for 16 years. We have two beautiful children,
and we live in Fayetteville, NC.
I am the author of Designated Fat Girl, which is a
memoir about food addiction. To learn more about that
project, click on the Designated Fat Girl button. I’m
also working on a young-adult fiction series, and have
finished a screenplay, titled Livin’ Like Kings.
I am very fortunate to work for one of the best
television stations in the country, WRAL-TV. You can
hear my morning news updates on Fayetteville radio
stations 965 the Drive (96.5 FM) and Foxy 99 (99.1 FM).
