Meet Your New Patch Editor!

Paula Skaggs is taking over as editor of the Winnetka-Glencoe and Wimette-Kenilworth Patch.

Hello, everyone!

After just under four months as the editor of the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Patch, I am so excited to be heading south - and taking over the reins from Chi-an Chang as the Winnetka-Glencoe and the Wilmette-Kenilworth editor.

First, a little about me. I recently graduated from St. Olaf College in Minnesota (Um Ya Ya!) where I studied Media, Political Science and American Studies. However, I've known that I wanted to be a journalist since I was 10 years old, and named myself Editor-in-Chief of my middle school newspaper. I've also written for the Huffington Post, USA Today, C-SPAN, Hellogiggles and the Rochester Post-Bulletin. While I'm not busy working, I love documentaries, traveling and eBay.

Although I'm still relatively new to the area, I have come to love the beauty, the diversity of things to do and, of course, the people of the North Shore! Please shoot me an email at paula.skaggs@patch.com with questions, comments or anything that you'd like to see covered.

Can't wait to work with you all.

Patch on!

Paula Skaggs
