I was raised in Woodbridge, and I am now raising my family in Northern Virginia. I founded Potomac Local News in 2010 to provide the tools and understanding they need to participate in their government. My reporting has taken me inside the halls of state and local governments, from the chamber of commerce to the execution chamber, and the streets where the men and women of our public safety departments work tirelessly to keep us safe. I've worked the assignment desk at NBC 4 in Washington, D.C., as a crime beat reporter for Insidenova.com, and I am a founding member of the national non-profit Local Independent Online News Publishers, where I served on the Board of Directors. I serve on the Board of Directors of Volunteer Prince William. I value your feedback, support, and your news tips.
