I have been with The Enterprise newspaper since August 2000. I covered education for about a year and then moved over to cover county government and land-use matters where I remain. I earned by bachelor’s degree in history from St. Mary’s College of Maryland where I graduated in May 2000, but also worked for my high school newspaper so it was a natural progression to come back to journalism. I attended Town Creek Elementary School, Esperanza Middle School and Leonardtown High School. I have lived in St. Mary’s County since 1980, though my father’s side of the family has been in St. Mary’s County for generations. My grandmother Jane “Millie” Woodburn was born and raised in Pearson before it was taken for Patuxent River Naval Air Station. One of my passions is sharing with our readers the history of St. Mary’s County.
