When it comes to social media, you can find me:
When did you start working here?
What other positions have you held here?
I was a contributing editor covering fashion, start-ups and entrepreneurs in the Queen City.
Where else have you worked?
I was the personality and editor for Cincysavers.com while also the other half of the radio segment, “One Chic Mother to Another” on WKRQ (101.9 FM), which aired daily in the afternoons. I wrote for both Q102 and Cincysavers.com, sharing fashion advice, DIY projects, money saving tips and more.This whole career change came from blogging as a marketing supplement for my accessory business I founded in 2007, FENNOfashion.com, which I still continue to run part time.
Where did you go to college?
I have a bachelor of fine arts from Savannah College of Art & Design specializing in Fashion and Accessory Design.
What are you most proud of when it comes to work?
I’m proud to say I have pretty versatile set of skills from fashion design, marketing, branding, blogging, radio, television and social media. Combining all these skills in a career can be challenging; but from experience can say anything’s possible!
What are you most proud of in your own life?
I more or less had a life plan set back in high school. I knew I wanted to attend Savannah College of Art & Design and have some sort of career back in Cincinnati pertaining to design or writing. Though I took a few obstacles, I’m married to my high school sweetheart, have an awesome little boy, and live right in the heart of Cincinnati working here at WCPO. It’s a pretty awesome life.
What do you love about living in the tri-state?
Unlike any other place I’ve visited or even lived, Cincinnati has a unique, provincial culture. While there has been many changes throughout the decades, I feel as though Cincinnati is one of the few cities that’s retained its unique identity. The strong sense of community within the tri-state makes for a great place to raise a family, have or start a local business and meet like-minded people that are equally as proud to call Cincinnati their home.
What are your favorite local hang outs/places:
I’m always around the Banks. Between Smale Park and all the fun festivals and activities surrounding the Banks, there’s never a dull moment.
I’m calling myself out here: I don’t watch TV unless it’s the news. The only books I read are about blogging, marketing and simplifying life.
Other than 9 On Your Side & WCPO.com, I get my news from:
Twitter & NPR
