Background: As someone who has had a lifelong interest in health and conversation, I'm thrilled to be part of the team that brings both to the Onslow County community. I'm a professional journalist with a perpetual curiousity what's happening and why it's happening. I'm also the co-author of "How to Say It: Marketing with New Media" (Penguin, Prentice Hall 2008) and am excited to see the emergence of new technology in healthcare. E-mail me whenever you have a question or if you want to say hi!
