Cara Modisett's Leaving Us for a Year

My dear friend Cara Modisett, former editor of Blue Ridge Country, educator, musician and one of the most energetic and talented people I know will be leaving us for a year to take a job in Memphis.

She'll be at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion from may until July of next year as minister of communication. Cara will be in residence two weeks per month this spring and summer, and then full-time beginning in September.

She has a graduate degree in creative nonfiction writing, and undergraduate degrees in English and piano performance. She also has 15 years of experience in publishing, journalism, and broadcasting.

Most recently, Cara has served as communications advisor to the Episcopal Diocese of Southwestern Virginia, Music Director at St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church in Roanoke, and as an adjunct member of the faculty at Ferrum College. She continues to serve as editor-at-large of Blue Ridge Country Magazine. Cara is a native of the Harrisonburg, and is married to Phil Atkins, also of Roanoke.
