Fernandez began writing for Indianapolis Monthly in 1995 while studying journalism at Indiana University. One of her freelance assignments required her to join a women's full-tackle football team for a season. She joined the staff in 2005 to edit IM's ancillary publications, including Indianapolis Monthly Home. In 2011, she became a senior editor responsible for the Circle City section as well as coverage of shopping, homes, and design-related topics. Now an executive editor, she lives downtown.
Monumental Circle is more accessible than people think for quirky events like my roller-skating dance party. But when it comes to programming the space in an organized way, we haven’t quite found our bearings.
It’s a changing of the guards, forwards, centers, coaches, Kiss Cams, corporate suites, home-court advantages, technical fouls, and practically every aspect of traditional basketball Hoosiers know and love.
