I worked for more than a decade as a newspaper reporter before becoming the career and money editor here at DivineCaroline. I live in Atlanta and DivineCaroline is based in San Francisco, so I work out of my house. When I tell people where I work, they assume I started my own site and that I consider myself divine. I have to explain the name thing is just a coincidence. The home office throws people too. I think my neighbors wonder if I really have a job or if I just take my children to daycare and then watch soap operas all day in my sweats. So that brings me to my family… My husband Tony and I have two beautiful children, a daughter Chloe who is two and a son Whit who is two months. We also have a dog Sweet Tea.
