Jaymi Butler

Jaymi Butler is a writer and editor who enjoys telling the stories of growth and innovation in the Tampa Bay Area, which she has called home since 2003. A former reporter for the Savannah Morning News, The State, and The Tampa Tribune, she has covered a variety of topics ranging from business to features to public health -- and she even got to sit in on an American Idol audition just feet away from Simon Cowell!

Butler graduated with her BS in journalism from the University of Florida and later received a Master's of Education from the University of South Florida. When she's not working, you can probably find her taking a horseback riding lesson, online shopping, or cheering on the Florida Gators with her friends.
