About the book

Speaking events

I’m available to speak for special events and to host book signings. My areas of expertise include writing, media training, social media and public relations. I charge $150 for speaking events outside of the Montgomery area. To schedule a talk or book signing, contact me below.

About Me

I’ve always loved exploring new places and discovering the unexpected stories of people I meet.

I studied broadcast journalism at Western Kentucky University, but in my professional career found a passion for public relations and writing.

In my job with the Alabama Farmers Federation, I’ve traveled across the state to report for our TV show, Simply Southern.

I share some of my favorite spots, and a few things I still need to check off my own bucket list, in my new book, “100 Things To Do In Alabama Before You Die.”
