About Alaina O’Neal, Co-Founder of

Alaina O’Neal is a talented writer, graphic designer and entrepreneur.

She has worked for a variety of media outlets including the Citizen TribuneThe Chattanooga Times Free Press and the Elizabethton Star.

During those tenures, she received multiple Tennessee Press Association awards.
