‘Hometown girl’ joining paper’s editorial staff
It may be long distance for now, but Monica Coleman hopes to make her association with The Tunica Times “up close and personal” in the coming year.
Coleman has already started conducting telephone interviews for a series of feature stories on people who have overcome adversity. Coleman’s stories will appear in The Times in the weeks to come, beginning this week with a feature on Brady Vaughn.
Prior to becoming a successful entrepreneur, Monica Coleman served nearly six years in the corporate health care industry. During her tenure, she worked with several C-suite executives on the successful implementation of division-wide communications tools, employee relations and community relations initiatives. She simultaneously enjoyed a professional freelance writing career with work published in community newspapers, niche magazines, national magazines, newsletters, blogs and Internet radio.
