My journalistic journey to the Northfield News

Pam will talk about the importance of local journalism and the strategic direction of the Northfield News and the Southern Minnesota Newspapers
Born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, Pamela was an English major at Vassar College before receiving her master's degree in Journalism from the University of Kansas. After working on Capitol Hill for five years, she returned to the midwest to work as a press secretary on many political campaigns. In 2000, she doubled back to her journalism roots to be a reporter and magazine editor for her hometown newspaper. After two stints as an ex-pat living and working in Abu Dhabi, UAE and Hanoi, Vietnam, Pamela and her husband, Peter, an academic administrator, moved to Northfield in December 2021 when she became Associate Editor of the Northfield News.
