This week is bittersweet as we say goodbye to our Managing Editor Stephanie Powell and welcome our staff writer Molly Oleson, as our new editor. Stephanie will stay on as a contributing editor to the Pacific Sun, but we will miss her as she steps down from the day to day rigors of producing a weekly newspaper as well as editing our website PacificSun.com and our PS Today newsletter. It has been great to see the growth in Stephanie’s leadership and editing skills over the past year, and we wish her the best of luck in her new position at Strings magazine.
This week we also welcome Lily O’Brien as copy editor. Lily has lived in Marin County for more than 15 years. Her passions include singing, music, writing, world travel, bicycling and Buddhism.
Our new Editor Molly Oleson is a writer, editor, photographer and illustrator with a B.F.A. from Boston University and a master’s degree in journalism from UC Berkeley. She has produced content for local and national publications, and has traveled as far as India, South Africa and Brazil for stories. Molly looks forward to taking the helm at the Sun, and is committed to making the paper the best that it can be.
Congratulations to Steph, Lily and Molly, and stay tuned for more …
