Earlier this year I took an assignment to write a community profile of the Roanoke Valley and New River Valley for Virginia Business magazine.

That story, which includes looks at the region’s manufacturing, tech sector, tourism, local food, craft brewing, retail, real estate and more, has now been published. It’s online here at the Virginia Business website, or you can find it in the print edition this month.
