It’s a true story. I used to run three miles each day to the office of the now-defunct Hershey Chronicle with a reporter’s notepad and pen shoved in the elastic of my gym shorts. I was 15. I had no car. No driver’s license.
That’s how much I loved this career we call journalism.
Ten years later, I channel that same enthusiasm in everything I do.
I’m a multi-platform journalist covering business — specifically investing and manufacturing — at the York Daily Record/Sunday News in York, Pa.
And I love my job.
I’m journo on-the-go, with just an iPad, iPhone and laptop.
I work anywhere, anytime. Members of the public are encouraged to stop by my mobile office — whether it’s a coffee shop, gas station or farmer’s market — to share what’s going on in their communities.
Once I’ve got the story, I strive to capture details of life, from a 4-year-old plucking items from the shelf as her mother shops for groceries to glimpses of hope in the aftermath of unthinkable tragedy.
For fun, I enjoy running, reading, public speaking, talking to random people on the street and finding new platforms to tell stories.
