Mandy is a Jacksonville native, born and raised. She attended the University of North Florida and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in communications and a minor in creative writing. After interning for Jacksonville Magazine in the fall of 2015, she did everything she could to become a permanent member of the team. The rest is history.
When not working, she can be found writing, reading a romance novel, traveling to Disney World, playing with her pup Belle or binge watching How to Get Away With Murder, Jane the Virgin or Law and Order: SVU. She thoroughly enjoys karaoke and trivia, neither of which she excels at, but makes up for in effort. She hopes to travel to all the most beautiful places in the world and can already cross off the list California, the Bahamas and Hawaii. Go Gators!
