Class Year


Professional Background

I entered the journalism field immediately after graduation as a staff writer for the Durham Morning Herald. The wife of a Duke professor recommended me for the job and the Herald was interested in beginning to hire more women.

How has being an English graduate from Duke University help shape your professional success?

I honed my writing skills as an English major with weekly essays in freshman year and many papers through four years. I think there has been a certain prestige involved in having a Duke graduate on the staff of newspapers.
