Each Monday, we will introduce an AWSM member as part of our “Member Mondays” initiative. Get to know some of your AWSM colleagues!
When did you join AWSM?: I first joined in either 2002 or 2003. It was when I was a student at the University of Florida.
How AWSM has helped you?: I think, more than anything, there’s comfort in knowing that you’re not going at this alone as a woman working in sports.
Job/place of employment: Sports News Editor at CNN
Previous position (the one immediately before your present job): CNN Newsource Assignment Editor/Producer (covering news)
Residence (city): Atlanta
Favorite team/s: Despite graduating from UF, I was a diehard Ohio State football fan because my parents graduated from there. That fandom never stopped – even when OSU and UF played each other.
Favorite sporting event/s: Ooh – this is a tough one! I love watching that first Thursday of NCAA March Madness.
Favorite sports venue/s: Old Grandstand at the U.S. Open. I’m going to miss that place. I also loved watching Braves games at Turner Field; I am curious what it will feel like when Georgia State starts playing football games there. That will be an adjustment for me.
Quote (your own or someone else’s): Everybody’s got to be someplace (from my late great grandmother).
