I finally have a legit personal & professional news announcement, and it doubles as a #DecadeinReview #lookback: I am moving to Philadelphia in the new year to join @PhillyInquirer as a digital producer! 10.5 yrs ago, I had just finished an internship w their health desk. 1/?
@PhillyInquirer A lot has happened since then. My 1st FT #journalism job @bkreporter where I burned shoe rubber cultivating love/appreciation of #localnews in my home borough as a reporter/magazine EIC/digital editor for four years, then @bklyner, #freelancer life and, currently, @flipboard. 2/?
@PhillyInquirer @bkreporter @bklyner @Flipboard Leaving @flipboard as breaking news editor is bittersweet. 6 mos turned into 2 yrs thanks to valuable work & amazing colleagues who made a remote newsroom feel interactive & seamless.

@PhillyInquirer @bkreporter @bklyner @Flipboard @gabyaschwarz @SonaliKamboj @jeelsey @sfine88 @thekenyeung @miaq I'm excited to combine this #localnews foundation w my enthusiasm/curiosity for digital innovation and belief in community collaboration @PhillyInquirer, where so many great people are doing great work to grow/expand in exactly these areas in a 21st C newsroom. 6/?
@PhillyInquirer @bkreporter @bklyner @Flipboard @gabyaschwarz @SonaliKamboj @jeelsey @sfine88 @thekenyeung @miaq That said, I'm a NYer born&bred, my family is here, I was lucky to be born in the correct city, this is NOT a why-I-left-NY thread bc you can't take NY out of this girl. Still, I am thrilled to call Philly—NY's 7th boro, after NJ, imo— a 2nd home. #publicschoolpride #brooklyn 7/?
