Andrea Griffith Cash is the editor of Chapel Hill Magazine.

About Andrea:

1) What is your favorite part of your job?

Through my job, I’ve dined with R.L. Stine at Crook’s Corner, interviewed Elizabeth Edwards and danced the night at way at a fundraiser for UNC Lineberger at the Chapel Hill Country Club. What’s not to love? And nothing can top the happiness I feel when people tell me how much they enjoy our magazine.

2) What do you enjoy most about living in Chapel Hill?

Its appreciation for culture, whether it comes in the form of a play, an exhibit opening, a food tour, a book reading, a music festival or a farmers’ market cooking contest.

3) Where is your hometown?

From Almost Heaven to the Southern Part of Heaven: I grew up in Lewisburg, West Virginia, which is known for its close proximity to The Greenbrier Resort. I’m extremely proud of my Mountain State roots. Many people have learned the hard way not to make a West Virginia joke around me.

4) Please share your previous work experience/background in the industry.

After attending High Point University, I worked as a reporter for the (Greensboro) News & Record before taking a job as assistant editor of Our State magazine. In 2009, I joined Chapel Hill Magazine.

5) What are some of your hobbies and interests?

Singing, working out, reading, hosting dinner parties with my husband and taking in all that aforementioned culture in Chapel Hill.
