What do you do?
Editor, The Resident Community News.
How did you get your job?
Began freelancing Sept 2012 shortly after moving to Jacksonville after 30 years in Pittsburgh, PA; previous editor left and recommended me for the position in Nov 2012.
What is the best professional lesson you learned at the J-School?
Never be afraid to ask questions when you don’t know what you need to know. Always respond to questions you don’t know the answers to with “I don’t know, but I will find out!”
What advice do you have for current students?
Be fearless. Be courteous. Together they will help you succeed.
What is your favorite J-School memory?
Taking the news reporting class during the summer and interviewing nudists for a story. Great practice for learning to keep eye contact!
