As editor of Madison Magazine and madisonmagazine.com, I help implement the publication’s mission to inform and entertain, affect positive change in the community and serve as an effective vehicle for its advertisers. We are the area’s leading voice for who’s who (or not), what’s what, where to eat, what to buy, when to see a show, and how to maximize your health, home, travel and career. And we don’t just tell you, we show you with quality journalism, professional photography, and artistic, thoughtful layouts and design. At Mad Mag our job is to make connections, often personal ones, to the people, places, and ideas that shape our little slice of the Midwest. Because connected communities make desirable, highly successful communities, which is why we strive to be a relevant voice for and chronicler of these exciting conversations.
During my leadership, the magazine has received more than two-dozen Milwaukee Press Club Awards for both editorial and design and three national journalism honors for multimedia convergence and general excellence. In 2007, Milwaukee Press Club named me Editor of the Year. I received a bachelor’s in Women’s Studies from the University of Virginia and a master’s in Journalism and Mass Communication from UW–Madison.
Interests: daughter Chloe, dog walking, running, snowshoeing, the Northwoods, “The Office” and “Modern Family,” and a good night’s sleep.
