Eleanor-Scott Best is the Senior Associate Editor of Chapel Hill Magazine and Durham Magazine.

1) What is your favorite part of your job?

I am new to the area and this job has given me a crash course on my new home. The list of places I want to eat is a mile long!

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

This might sound odd but the squirrels in Chapel Hill seem to have a lot of personality. We have a family of them that live on our back deck and keep us entertained for hours. The squirrels unfortunately stay entertained by finding new ways to break into our bird feeder.

3) Where is your hometown?

Goldsboro, North Carolina.

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

Before joining the team at Chapel Hill and Durham Magazines, I served as editor of skirt! Magazine in Charlotte.

5) What are some of your hobbies and interests?

I love to cook and am determined to become a better baker–one burnt batch of cookies at a time.
