Cindy graduated from Penn State University in 1979. After a 10-year career as a radio news reporter, Cindy served as Assistant Director of University Relations from 1983-1987. When her two sons were very young, she returned to radio news at the request of several news directors for short-term employment. Her stint on US-101 as an early-morning traffic reporter was her favorite radio job.
She was hired again as Assistant Director of UTC University Relations in 2000.
Cindy writes about UTC students, faculty and staff. She works with the media, edits and writes print and online publications, participates in emergency management planning, serves on numerous University committees, and engages in University event planning. She enjoys mentoring student interns from the Departments of English and Communication.
Cindy lives in Chattanooga. She likes to cook big family meals when her sons come to visit. Her favorite place is under an umbrella on a sunny beach, where she can get lost in a good summer read.
