Here’s the part where I might list a seminary degree, devout upbringing, or devotional manuscript. But I’m no theologian. I’m just the one who interviews them.
I’ve been asking question about faith and meaning-making since my high school obsession with comparative religion scholar Joseph Campbell and ended up turning that curiosity into a career.
As an editor and reporter at Christianity Today magazine, my work has been recognized by the Religion News Association and the Evangelical Press Association. In addition to managing our online news coverage, I have written several long-form cover stories; oversaw CT’s popular Her.meneutics blog; and as social media manager, grew our following by more than ten-fold, larger than any other Christian publication in the country.
Prior to CT, I was a religion reporter and online producer at the Houston Chronicle. As a freelance writer, I’ve also written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, and Vox. I have appeared on CNN, PRI’s The World, NPR’s It’s Been A Minute, WAMU’s 1A, and WBUR's Here and Now (half the time talking about reality TV—my other passion).
I studied journalism and religion at Washington and Lee University, and I earned my master’s at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern. I live in Augusta, Georgia.
