Clip: A time for tradition

Link: A time for tradition

I wrote the November cover story for OC Family magazine on the subject of creating lasting, memorable family traditions.

The article opened my eyes (and informed by life as a mother) to ways of spending no money to build lasting memories important for kids and their parents.

I was invited to write the OC Family magazine annual cover story about the top interesting picks of inspired moms in Orange County.

I really loved getting to meet and learn about each woman. I was awarded an awesome opportunity to tell each mother’s story in a way that would then inspire other moms in the county.

I was working a weekend reporting shift when I was forwarded an email announcing the death of a beloved Chapman law school professor. I wrote an obituary about her, her work and the impact she had on others’ lives. Then, I started and continued updating a collection of memory’s about Darmer that streamed in after people read my story. Due to high reader interest in the story, I continued reporting on Darmer during the week and posted that it was probed, and later confirmed, a suicide and I posted that a vigil was planned and then followed up with photos from the vigil.
