Publisher, Editorial Director
Regina is a creative entrepreneur and accidental salesperson with 25 years of experience working with small, local business owners to help them connect with local customers through appropriate advertising mediums.
Her career in local magazines began in 1992 upon graduation from UGA with Atlanta Bride. As Market Manager, Regina was responsible for all sales, local marketing, special events and account management for the publication for eight years. In this role, she was blessed to have been mentored by smart, ethical and professional publishers who truly invested in their employees growth. The magazine went through four separate acquisitions, the last of which was Conde Nast, as they were developing hyperlocal versions of Modern Bride and Brides magazines. Later, with a young family, Regina worked remotely doing contract media sales for local versions of Glamour, Allure, Vogue and Bon Appetit.
She launched her first local magazine in 2013 -Canton Magazine- and the following year added Milton Magazine. In late 2014, Regina partnered with Chris Smith, of Roswell and formed Local Life Publishing, LLC, soon adding Roswell Magazine and Alpharetta Magazine to the portfolio. In 2019, after enjoying five years of his mentorship, Regina purchased Chris’ shares and is excited about the future of the business. Email Regina.
