April Cameron is the mother hen of Anderson Magazine. She had the dream and desire to create a magazine to share all of the good news about Anderson County, and so she did. April serves as the Publisher and Editor.
April comes from a background of marketing, public relations and journalism. Born and raised in South Georgia, April came to Anderson in 2015 and has immersed herself in the community that she has grown to love, appreciate and enjoy.
As the past president of the Junior League of Anderson County, April got very involved in charitable organizations in the county.She now works with the United Way of Anderson County and its Women United group, is a member of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson and a graduate of Leadership Anderson.
When April isn’t finding the next great story about Anderson County, she is usually running the taxi for her son Cooper to some ball field or for her daughter Avery to either a horse barn or a volleyball court. You can also see her frequently sipping on a glass of red wine while trying to get an obnoxious amount of pet hair off of her clothes from Georgia, the stray cat who hit the jackpot, or Miller, the pound puppy who found his forever home.
Jennifer Walker is the creative genius behind Anderson Magazine and has been a graphic designer for more than 18 years. She has worked with a variety of publications including magazines and newspapers and also has a marketing business designing logos, advertisements, letterhead and more.
As a graduate of Anderson College, Jennifer began her career by working for Belk’s corporate office and the BI-LO corporate office before leaving to pursue a freelance graphic design career. She is married to Jeff, and they have two daughters, Samantha and Alex. The most recent addition to the Walker family is a rapidly growing Doberman named Cinder.
A past president of the Junior League of Anderson County, Jennifer now stays involved in the community by volunteering at her children’s school and at Meals on Wheels-Anderson.
Jennifer lives “in the country” where she enjoys reading, cooking and making crafts with the girls. She is also the owner of an online gift business, JW Gifts – personalized and unique gifts.
Lisa Marie Carter is the social media guru and the online editor for Anderson Magazine and has been in publishing for more than 20 years. She has worked with a variety of publications including magazines and newspapers across the United States and also has a social media and marketing business, LMC Marketing.
As a transplant from, well, a bit of everywhere, she uses her experiences and love of travel to bring fun and unique articles online and in print for Anderson Magazine such as “Tank Away Getaway”. She is married to George and together they spoil their Anderson County Humane Society rescue dog, Gela (whose name comes from a combination of both their names).
Lisa’s love of animals is very obvious as she helped start, and is the treasurer of the Hyco K-9 Fund, a local 501c3 charity that was formed to honor ACSO K9 Hyco who was shot and killed in the line of duty. The proceeds from all fund raisers with the Hyco K-9 Fund benefit K9s across South Carolina by purchasing much needed equipment/gear and training that may otherwise not be covered by that departments budget.
Lisa also lives “in the country” out near the shores of Lake Hartwell where she enjoys her daily morning run, paddle boarding, yoga, reading, cooking and gardening. When Lisa’s not planning the next Hyco K-9 Fund fund raiser or working on magazine business she enjoys sitting on her back deck with a great glass of wine and watching for the wildlife to appear and graze for their evening snacks.
