Topics Editor

As a first-year Floridian, I’m already learning to love this place. I work with our reporting crews in Pasco and Hernando counties to cover the North Suncoast and generally keep an eye on things up here. I’m a hiker, a horsewoman and a newspaper editor of 30 years, happy to be practicing her craft so close to our family in Brooksville. This community is not Tampa or St. Pete. We are our own flavor of folks on the frontier between old Florida and the burgeoning burbs. And we are full of good stories to tell.
