What did you do before you were a Miner?
I was a journalist for nearly a decade. During that time I focused mostly on political reporting on the local and state level in Pennsylvania, Kansas, Missouri and Ohio for newspapers and television.
What are three things people don’t know about you?
I’m an introvert, I love a good state fair, and 80’s music is my favorite go-to dance music.
What do you do for fun?
I read a lot. When I’m not reading I’m outside as much as I can be. I like to sail, practice yoga, ride horses, hike, go to concerts, and explore new places. I’m usually in my kitchen on Sunday mornings baking and cooking for the week.
What is your favorite quote?
“In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth. For nothing is more precious than the life force and may the love of that force guide you as you go.” – Patti Smith
