Andie Foley joins Post news staff

SALISBURY — Andie Foley has joined the Salisbury Post as a reporter to cover politics and county government.

A native of Rowan County, Foley has a passion for writing that started during her formative years. She has worked for five years in the nonprofit sector, using her passion to secure over seven figures in grant funding during that time.

Foley earned her bachelor’s degree in the spring from Catawba College, where she majored in writing with a minor in communications. She fell in love with journalism during her last year at Catawba, when she served as an intern for the Post.

After graduation, Foley freelanced with organizations across Rowan County, offering professional writing and graphic design services. Recently, she worked with the Family Crisis Council, a local domestic abuse organization, as resource media director.

Foley and her husband, Adam, have a precocious 4-year-old daughter named Judah-Leigh. The pair have been married for six years.

Foley fills a position formerly held by Josh Bergeron, who left the Post to become managing editor of The State Journal in Frankfort, Ky.
