I love being a journalist. I have been editing, writing, laying out pages and reading news stories for 15 years after I stumbled into the Eastern Echo's basement newsroom at Eastern Michigan University in search of some work on campus. I was amazed at how quickly I felt at home.
I always have been drawn to providing useful and entertaining information to others. I enjoy the words, "oh, I didn't know that!" I'm thankful journalism has allowed me to inform others (including myself) in many ways and for many years.
Now, as a mother of two young boys and wife of a local business owner, I am ecstatic that I am able to use my skills to provide this service in my own community.
