Serving as a two-time editor at Mauldin High School, one of South Carolina’s top programs, gave this Crown- and Pacemaker-listmaking wordsmith her start. Never leaving our family, she was also a four-year staffer and editor at Furman University, from which she earned degrees in English and history. Even though she obsesses over active voice and reminds herself to avoid the Oxford comma, she can also wrangle the Swiss grid. Her high school and college programs were both in the Square One pilot, one using InDesign and the other, eDesign. A lover of all things printed, she worked at an independent bookstore and interned at a publishing house in Edinburgh, Scotland. She’s not sure how she feels about Indiana winters, or being called a Hoosier.
