You know, a funny thing happens when a snappy journalist who’s good with words is asked to write their own bio! Julie Ann Grimm stepped in and volunteered a month or so ago as our chapter’s interim Treasurer and now it’s official; Julie Ann was elected Treasurer in the recent state-wide election and we’re delighted that she’s decided to come on board – and to the board! – formally. When asked to describe herself to the chapter, here’s what Julie Ann had to say:
Julie Ann Grimm covers local government for The Santa Fe New Mexican, where she has worked for nearly seven years. The St. Louis native is a 2001 University of Missouri graduate and worked for the Associated Press in Albuquerque for two years before joining the staff at the oldest family-owned newspaper in New Mexico (and run by a woman to boot!). She reached the summit of her first 14,000 foot peak this summer, and has hiked the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail. She is an avid reader, fireside chatter and letter-writer who also sings in her church choir. She shares her home with husband Michael and three no-longer-feral cats. She wears sensible shoes and loves walking on the Santa Fe streets (and their sidewalks).
