Connect Iredell


Meet Connect Iredell’s Editor In Chief, Catherine Diehl. 

Catherine is a North Carolina native and has grown up with Iredell County as her umbrella. She received her Bachelor's degree in English from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she also studied creative writing. She joined Connect after five successful years as the Director of Marketing and Communications at Power Cross Ministries and she is excited to bring that love for nonprofits into her role. Catherine has a passion for writing and sharing people’s stories, because she believes that words should be lifegiving. To her, words have the power to transform hearts and minds, and that’s all they should ever be used for. Catherine looks forward to sharing stories about local people and their businesses, with the hopes of helping everyone grow and helping others see the beauty that surrounds them in Iredell County.

Connect Iredell is proudly brought to you by the team at Spokeology as a service to give back to the community where we LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE!   

The Connect mission is to help wash away the boundaries previously set for the political and administrative division of a state, to allow for an inclusive marketing platform. Our goal is to help bring together things that are otherwise divided. We are dedicated to showcasing local businesses, events, organizations, people and talent. Connect Iredell will work to tell the stories of the amazing people who make up our county while providing a free community calendar as well as a business directory to allow organizations and small businesses to promote themselves.
