My writing has now been featured on National Geographic blogs, The Huffington Post and … Hello Giggles!
Hello Giggles is women’s humor site I adore. So, I was really excited to see my post shared on their facebook and twitter morning! For a little giggle, check out my story 11 Steps to Being the Best Damn Maid of Honor in the World. And feel free to share your own tips in the comments on this positive, connected site.
My piece made it to the Hello Giggles Home Page as a featured story!
I was very excited to be the featured Explorer this week on National Geographic’s 125th anniversary blog.
You can learn a little bit about my project and the tradition of St. Joseph’s Day in the Explorer Moment of the Week gallery. Or read more about the Sicilian holiday in my News Watch post.

Today, in honor of National Margarita Day, BuzzFeed Food compiled a list of 29 Crazy Margaritas You Need to Try. My original Peppermint Margarita made the list at number 25! So, let’s raise a margarita glass and celebrate the holiday with one of BuzzFeed’s crazy (delicious) concoctions!

I have been blogging consistently for National Geographic News Watch for a little less than a year — and have also written for NG Traveler’s Intelligent Travel Blog. But yesterday was definitely a highlight as my Mardi Gras coverage was featured on the National Geographic home page, www.nationalgeographic.com.

After completing my fieldwork as a National Geographic Young Explorer, I am on the job hunt. My search includes print and online media positions.

Thank you for your patience as my website was recently updated to reflect my post-graduate life and work. I would like to thank Stephanie Lyles for the lovely banners she designed for both this website and The Old Country Blog. These updates, in addition to beautifying my sites, helped me develop my wordpress and blogger skills.
I hope you enjoy the website and learn a little bit about me and my endeavors as a blogger, explorer and journalist. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to learn more about my work.
Hey guys, sorry for if the site looks a little wonky! I am currently updating the website and making it a little more me!
I just wanted to let you know that my Ninth Ward research is coming to an end. With nearly 50 interviews and a few more on the schedule, I have reached my interview goals. If we have not yet scheduled an interview, I probably will be unable to meet with you. Thank you for your support. I could not have reached this goal, if Ninth Warders had not embraced me and welcomed me into their lives.
Thanks again and please contact me if you have any questions or concerns,
I had the wonderful opportunity to write a few blogs for National Geographic Traveler on their Intelligent Travel blog. My first post was published today, titled Five Louisiana Food Quirks. Check it out!
