How long at MUSC
My one-year anniversary was July 30.
What did you do before joing MUSC?
I worked as a newspaper reporter in Charleston and, before that, in Florida. I mostly covered courts and crime but also business and politics.
An American dingo named Bonnie and an African spur thigh tortoise named Otto
I play jammer on our local roller derby team, the Lowcountry Highrollers. My skater name is Green-Eyed Sniper.
There’s no “sorry” in roller derby.
Greatest moment in your life
June 22, when the love of my life asked me to marry him on the edge of a cliff in the Blue Ridge Mountains
A must-have in the fridge
Arugula. I would seed my whole lawn with that stuff if I could.
