45 ° Fair
Director of Communications
Godwin Hall Room 208
I am passionate about language, the arts, nature, movement and fitness, food, popular culture and current events, but most of all about being exposed to new experiences, people and ideas. I am so thrilled to be a part of the Virginia Wesleyan family. The intellectual and creative energy on this intimate but incredibly vibrant campus are matched only by its close-knit and welcoming vibe.
I have a B.A. in English from James Madison University and a B.F.A. in Dance & Choreography from Virginia Commonwealth University. I studied abroad in Salamanca, Spain. I have held all manner of jobs and “jobs” in my life: bartender, resort maid, dancer and fitness instructor, camera store clerk, wanna-be rock star and of course, writer, editor and communications professional. For six years, I served as senior editor of Port Folio Weekly, a local paper covering news, politics, arts and culture in the Hampton Roads region.
I joined the VWC family in November 2010. My job is to think creatively and write engagingly in an effort to reach out to the community and the public concerning all things VWC. Fortunately, there is no shortage of amazing stuff happening in our little wooded corner of the universe, so there’s always plenty to brag about. I am proud to work with a talented, dynamic Communications staff, all of whom work tirelessly to promote this “powerhouse of a little place.”
I have a husband who makes me laugh, a lovely daughter who wants to be Kristen Wigg when she grows up and a cat named Jack. A few other random things you might like to know about me:
