As a business reporter I've covered everything from mergers and acquisitions, financial reports and personal investing to taxes. Lately I've been employed as a reporter covering small businesses both nationally and locally. It's been a pleasure and an education talking to entrepreneurs - they have such a fresh outlook on life and a true passion for what they do. Below are highlights of my work.
