What interests you about journalism?

I think what interests me most about journalism is the opportunity to learn about other people and to feel like there is a reason to ask questions about things I’m curious about. I often wonder about a lot of things, but I don’t usually give voice to that wonder. Journalism appeals to my curiosity.


What are you doing when you aren't at The Clipper?

Mostly, spending time with my husband and family. When I am not doing that you can often find me reading, writing (mostly fiction), or photographing things. Occasionally, I draw, although not well, and attempt digital art.


What’s on your bucket list?

I’d like to travel. I think that being able to experience perspectives that are different than mine would be quite interesting. To see how life differs between Washington and elsewhere, both in the U.S. and out of it, would be potentially wonderful. I think I could learn a  great deal from traveling.


Who’s your favorite fictitious character? Why?

I have quite a lot of favorite characters. However, Samwise Gamgee from Lord of the Rings also encompasses a lot of values that I also feel are important.  Sam doesn’t just go to Mordor to destroy evil or because it’s the right thing to do, but for friendship. In fact, the overall hobbit ideals really appeal to me.
