How wonderful to see this article come out in our local business paper!
I worked for Cascade Publications (home to Cascade Business News and Cascade Arts & Entertainment) for over four years, before the last 7+ years of the Oregon Desert Trail, before my hike of the Continental Divide Trail.
I was the A&E Editor and can attribute a lot of my design and writing chops to designing a 40-page art magazine once a month for years, and writing twice as many feature stories for both publications during that time. A hard publishing deadline is one of the best teachers!
I feel so lucky to be doing this work, and I couldn’t have gotten here without years of sweat, tears (yes, those deadlines sometimes provoked tears!), and just showing up day after day. There are so many metaphors I could insert here about how hiking is like life…blah blah blah, but it’s all true.
One step at a time.
Don’t get lazy.

Nice article, Renee, about someone who clearly deserves all of the praise she gets!
