Athens, Ohio

I began writing for The Post in Athens, Ohio in March 2009 as stringer, publishing roughly a story a week. In January 2010, I was promoted to Staff Writer, where I was expected to write 2 stories a week (but often did more). In September 2010, I was promoted to City Editor and as of September 2011, I will be the Assistant Managing Editor.

NOTE: The Post recently underwent a server upgrade and the archives have not been uploaded yet. All Post articles before Feb. 14, 2011 are temporarily not available.
