Deseret News, Salt Lake City, Utah
Career history: I joined the editorial board the spring of 1999 after about 6 years as a beat reporter in Utah and Colorado.
Family news: My husband is a juvenile court judge. We have two daughters, 9 and 5, and a 90-pound golden retriever who fancies himself a lap dog.
Changes in the shop: On Monday, April 2, the Deseret News converted to a 50-inch web. Meanwhile, we are in the throes of converting to morning publication. Mylanta, anyone?
Best thing about the job: A journalist doesn't fully understand the power of the press until he or she writes for the editorial page. I particularly relish the opportunity to lobby for reform, lift up people and programs that make a difference in people's lives, and call elected officials and other public officials on the carpet when they abuse their power.
Worst thing about the job: The constant pressure to feed the goat when there's nothing meaningful or profound to say, and dealing with letter writers who accuse me of censorship when I edit their hopelessly long letters.
First impressions of NCEW: NCEW appears to be a very professional organization that gives thoughtful consideration to issues that impact opinion writers and the industry on a whole.
