Have you ever heard the advice to remember what you loved as a child when making career decisions as an adult?
As I put together this issue of Tidings, I was reflecting on this adage and my own childhood. In elementary school, I created a monthly newsletter with articles, family news, jokes, and the kind of advice that only a ten-year-old could give. One month there was even an art contest for kids in our neighborhood, complete with prizes. I convinced my younger siblings to pitch in as junior editors and production assistants, and we mailed out our newsletter to friends and family. Thinking about that now, it isn’t surprising that I have found a career in communications, marketing, and publishing!
I am so thrilled to join Trinity as your new communications coordinator. Some of my previous experience includes working at the Florida Senate as an editor for their journal published during Session, directing the education center and summer camp at LeMoyne Arts, and interning at The Southeast Review, the literary journal in FSU’s English Department.
I hope you enjoy this issue of Tidings and feel some of the love and joy I put into creating it! I am looking forward to meeting more Trinity members and am so honored to put my talents towards sharing all the important work Trinity is doing.
