Hello World!

I am a late bloomer who found my passions later in life. When I looked at my child for the first time, I knew I had found my first passion.

I thought my passion list was complete until I began writing about Pawhuska and its people.

I have a B.A. in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

I moved to Oklahoma in 1996 and lived in the Tulsa area for a decade before moving north, where I found Pawhuska in 2010 and worked briefly for the Pawhuska Journal-Capital. I was recruited to work for the Osage Nation, where I worked from 2011-2014. In March 2014, I started McKee PR Advertising & Design and I continued my journalistic efforts at this website and on the Facebook page by the same name.

I prefer feature writing to hard news, so I leave those journalistic efforts to others.

The features published here generally have uplifting, culturally rich themes — celebrations of the magic that is Pawhuska!
