I’m an ordinary Hoosier with an extraordinary story. After moving quickly through the journalism ranks after college, I had my dream job at 32 as editor of the local newspaper. My favorite part was meeting people and telling their stories. I told what made them laugh and what brought them to tears. I wrote about their celebrations and their failures. I met their friends and families. When I left that position in 2009, I embarked on other adventures but missed my ordinary Hoosiers and their extraordinary stories. My mission now is to seek out those stories and share them with you. We often learn more about ourselves by reading the stories of others. Perhaps you find out a little bit more about your own uniqueness and your extraordinary story.
