Hi! I’m Virginia, and I love to learn and share stories. My work appears in Our State magazine, Charlotte magazine, BBC News Magazine, among others. A generalist, I’ve traveled to an eco-farm in Belize, interviewed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, soared in a helicopter over St. Lucia, and shared the stories of countless people and places. I hold a master’s in journalism from Northwestern University and a BA from UNC-Chapel Hill. I have one feisty cat named Roxy, and I’ll challenge anyone to a game of Scrabble.
