About Me

As you can see by the title of the page, my name is Tara Massagee and I am journalism major at the University of Florida. I have lived in the Gaineville area for about 12 years and recently married my high school sweetheart in April. We are also expecting our first child in late December, a boy. I hope to graduate this May and one day make an impact in the journalism world.


After I took reporting class, I thought I would rather have a root canal than finish pursuing my degree in journalism. It took landing an internship with the North Florida Herald to make me realize exactly what I wanted to do. There I learned my passion was people and their stories. After interning with the Herald, I went on to be a correspondent for the Levy County Journal and then a freelance writer for Tower Publications. I currently write for Tower and also copy edit and page design for the Gainesville Sun.
