I have a BA in Mass Media Communication with a minor in Journalism from UNCC, as well as some creative nonfiction experience. I have worked for several local newspapers, as well as my university's online newspaper and radio station. After college, I took a job working for RecoveryNowTV, as a blogger and news curator, covering all addiction and recovery news and opinion. I helped to build the website through social media and managed the entire news page for the website. Currently, I am involved in my own website, which is based around opiate addiction and Hepatitis C. I hope that this new project benefits others who are struggling with opiate addiction, or who suffer from Hepatitis C, often due to their drug use. Through these last two projects, as well as my personal experience with both addiction and recovery, I have become a knowledgable expert in the field. Previous to graduating college, I worked in restaurants, and my passion for food and cooking is obvious.
