Christina Warinner has joined the newsroom staff of the Times-Gazette. Warinner moved from Kentucky to Shelbyville this past July.

Christina Warinner has joined the T-G as a features reporter.

"Being new to the area, especially in this capacity, can be a challenge," she said. "However, I choose to see it as a positive in that I hope to offer a fresh set of eyes and ideas."

Warinner's primary focus will be on education and lifestyles features. She has always had a passion for contributing to her community through various outreaches and organizations, so she considers this to be right up her alley.

"I was pleased upon meeting Christina how plugged into the community she already was," said editor Sadie Fowler. "It is unsual to see someone so knowledgeable about a new community after such a short time. She had already been keeping up with the daily news via the T-G, and she also had an education background. Both of these things were very appealing to me."

Warinner took an unusual route to her post at the T-G. Having an undergraduate degree in management and a graduate degree in teaching, when Warinner and her family moved to Shelbyville due to her husband's job assignment, she forged a new path by responding to a call to write rather than teach.

A true writer

She has always been the go-to person for family and friends whenever written communications or editing help has been needed, so she has enjoyed using these skills more fully, most recently as a freelancer for the T-G.

"I believe we all have certain God-given gifts, and I am so excited about this opportunity to serve my community in this way."

Warinner and her family love to be outside hiking, fishing, and kayaking, or just playing around in the yard. She looks forward to hearing from you and becoming more immersed in community life.
