Emily was given the opportunity to move to Automatic Merchandiser Magazine as managing editor and so Ground Support Magazine welcomes Kristen aboard. Kristen, you have the floor.
When I was offered a position with Mass Transit Magazine last year, I promptly packed my things, moved to southern Wisconsin and started my career with Mass Transit. I was in charge of products, news and such for my first issue, but then I wrote a feature story about severe weather strategies for my second issue, and there was no turning back. Shortly thereafter, I had the opportunity and the honor of putting together both the November and December/January issues on my own —cover stories and all. I loved every bit of it, and I’ve never felt so proud.
I enjoyed my time with Mass Transit, but an opportunity arose when Emily was given an offer with Automatic Merchandiser Magazine. I am grateful for the chance to join Karen and Holly and the rest of the Ground Support Magazine staff as the associate editor. And I must say, I’m happy to be staying within transportation. I look forward to learning the industry and meeting you.
