Looking Forward to Covering Annapolis

New editor Anna Staver is eager to become part of the community she will cover.

My path to Patch started while I was a student at Kent State University in Ohio. There is a Kent Patch run by Matt Fredmonksy, also a Kent State alum. I freelanced for him until I took an internship this spring with the Huffington Post in Washington, DC.

When I arrived at my internship, fate sat me next to John Celock, the 50-state reporter and former editor of Westfield Patch. Part of Celock's job is to pick stories from Patches across the country to aggregate to the Huffington Post website.

He encouraged me to consider applying to be a local editor when I graduated, so I began looking into what sites across the country sounded interesting.

I chose Annapolis because I thought the city would offer a good mix of stories that appealed to me. I love politics, so living where Maryland’s State House is located would be a big plus. I enjoy sailing although I’m still what you would call a beginner.

I visited Annapolis during my internship and discovered a wide array of local restaurants, shops and nightlife. In short, Annapolis seemed like the best choice of all the Patches in need of a new local editor.

I can't wait to discover all that Annapolis has to offer and to meet all of you. If you see me around town, don’t hesitate to introduce yourself. I’m always on the lookout for new restaurants to visit or good story tips.

If there is something you think I should be covering, please email me at Anna.Staver@patch.com, tweet me at @AnnapolisPatch or send me a Facebook message anytime.

I arrived here with a blank slate and I’m looking forward to learning all about my new community.
