Starting in Worthington

One month ago I moved to Worthington and became the Daily Globe’s night editor. I grew up in Bemidji, just a few hours south of Canada. I studied at St. Paul’s Bethel University, where I dabbled in philosophy and learned to play a wicked game of broomball. My last semester I spent abroad in Oxford, England, studying literature and developing an addiction to Earl Grey tea. I’m a book geek—I love reading words, whether they’re children’s stories or engineering textbooks. That’s part of what I love about newspapers: I get to read about and share all the interesting and important things that happen, both in the community and worldwide.
I am not, however, a reporter. As night editor I design layout, select articles, copyedit and send it all to print. It’s been a bit of a sharp learning curve—this is my first post-college job—but I’m enjoying it. I still have a lot to learn.
I’ve only been here a month, but I think I like Worthington. There’s so much sky—no trees or hills to block the view. It’s been a cold winter here (definitely the most popular topic for both conversations and articles). But they tell me that the same wind that makes life in the winter months so ridiculously cold here will sweep in summer far earlier. I’m looking forward to it; I have a feeling the summer sunsets will be spectacular.
If you see me around town, feel free to stop and say hi. I’m the girl with the glasses, probably in a comfy chair at BenLee’s, waiting out the winter with a cup of tea and a good book.

One thought on “Starting in Worthington

  1. Welcome! I am also a frequenter of BenLee’s–primarily on Saturday mornings for at least a couple hours when I inhabit the “front window” seating with coffee in one hand and a good book in the other. Look for a middle-aged woman with glasses and a black beret.
