Before joining the university, Angela worked as a staff photographer for the Chattanooga Times Free Press for 30 years, winning numerous state and regional awards for her photography. She grew to love the university after covering the many aspects of the school for the newspaper, and looks forward to capturing the personality of the students and campus in photos.

She received a Bachelor of Science degree from MTSU in Mass Communications with emphasis on photography. 

She loves animals, bargain shopping, the internet, gardening, and the beach. Free time is spent with her husband, Todd, and their cats, or volunteering with the Pet Placement Center.
