Howdy readers! I would like to formally introduce myself. My name is Brittany and I am a staff writer here at The Lincoln County Journal. I hope our time together is fruitful and we can learn to like, and maybe even love, each other. 

A few things about me: I enjoy traveling, binge watching crime documentaries and indulging in entirely too much pizza.  I am a long time resident of Lincoln County, who graduated from Elsberry High School, and the Mother of three hilarious children. I am very passionate about supporting local businesses and I hope to shine a light on the hard working families in our area who operate them. 

Being a resident of our County has always made me proud.  From the main streets of Troy, to the gravel roads of Elsberry, the people who reside here are truly what make our county so great.

During my time here at the Journal, I am looking forward to providing our readers with articles that inspire them to, “Love thy neighbor”.  A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and fortunately we have each other to lean on in difficult times. Being kind will always be cool.
