So the cat is out of the bag. I am the new Editor-In-Chief of the Elk Grove Tribune and my friend Ashley Newell is our new Staff Writer! I am humbled and honored by my new position.
Back in August 2017, I started out as a Staff Writer for the Elk Grove Tribune. I have written many articles for the Elk Grove Tribune since then. I am lucky to be surrounded by a great team and by mentors who are willing to teach me the ropes as I go.
Ashley Newell is a fellow blogger friend and I really respect her as a writer. You can check out her awesome blog HERE. I’m thrilled that she will be going on this journey with me and I can’t wait to see what we can do together.
Writing has always been my passion but I didn’t really take a direct path to my career or to any of my educational degrees. Had I followed my passion, I would have chosen to go to Northwestern School of Journalism when I got in back in 2002. Not getting my Masters in Journalism has been one of my life’s biggest regrets. Years later, after stints at non-profits, I forged a career for myself with my former company Go Jade Solutions. I began to write business plans and marketing plans for start-ups. I then closed to Go Jade Solutions to focus on this blog and on my freelance writing. So you can see I definitely did not take a straight path in my career.
Every newspaper journalist worth their salt aspires to be in a position of management at a company they believe in. Essentially, becoming Editor-In-Chief of Elk Grove Tribune fulfills a lifelong dream of mine. I don’t pretend to know everything. This life is a dance. I learn as I go.
I know that I can’t do this alone. So I will be counting on my excellent writing team (especially Ashley Newell), my family, my friends, and all of you to help me figure this out. Thank you all for your love and support! I definitely would like to collaborate and connect with people in our community so if you wish to contact me, please use the form below.
