My name’s Theresa, and I am a journalist.
I am the editor-in-chief of the Kemmerer Gazette in the tiny coal-mining town of Kemmerer, Wyoming. I am also the reporter, photographer and page designer/editor. I am busy, and I absolutely love it.
I have come to appreciate small-town newspapers and the service that they do in reporting and recording the important issues of the town.
I recently graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I’m a native Texan who loves the West’s breathtaking seasons, but misses Tex-Mex food.
I believe in being passionate about everything. I love exploring new places, trying new food, and learning people’s stories. Writing about my travels, the food I eat, and the people I encounter has helped me to appreciate and to convey what life has to offer.
My dream job is to work as a reporter or an editor, and I’m living that dream. I interned at Salt Lake Magazine last summer and loved every minute. I got to write a review of a Dolly Parton concert. The Dolly Parton.
I worked in some capacity at The Universe at BYU for two years. I was a reporter, then a web editor, and then the deputy editor.
I am interested in writing about social issues, local politics, women’s rights issues, food, travel and education.
I will always and forever love the San Antonio Spurs. Kawhi Leonard is the man.
My happy place is in the kitchen. I make a mean chocolate cake, and I’m on a journey to perfect the chocolate chip cookie. In my free time, I like to read newspapers, play the piano, go backpacking, and watch Audrey Hepburn movies.
