What makes Charlottesville-Albemarle special to you?
Charlottesville-Albemarle combines the feeling of vibrant and eclectic small-town community with an incredible natural landscape.
Most looking forward to about working at Charlottesville Tomorrow?
I am excited to gain experience reporting on hyper local issues and to see my journalism working to support and promote community engagement in a city that I love.
Ultimate Charlottesville Saturday?
My ultimate Charlottesville Saturday begins with brunch at the Pigeon Hole, preferably sitting outside on a sunny fall day. Midday I might visit to the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA, where, as a volunteer dog walker, I can take a shelter dog for a walk and give him or her some much needed exercise. In the evening, I might meet some friends to sit outside on the Corner and drink a Bold Rock, followed by dinner on the Downtown Mall.
Favorite arts and culture venue in Charlottesville and away from Charlottesville?
The Jefferson is one of my favorite concert venues of all time. It’s a great place where UVA students and Charlottesville residents can come together and listen to great music from across the country. Away from Charlottesville, I love walking around lower Manhattan on a Saturday and wandering through the farmers markets and cultural festivals that take place in various squares.
Most interesting trip away from Charlottesville?
Last year, I spent a week hiking in the Scottish highlands. The landscape in northern Scotland is unlike anything I had seen before.
What’s still on your bucket list?
Despite having spent three years in Charlottesville, I have yet to hike Humpback Rock. On a larger scale, I would love to go dog sledding in Iceland and see the Northern Lights.
