Nicole Charky, a journalism graduate from Loyola University Chicago, is making a name for herself as a news editor in Los Angeles.
Here’s her post on Patch:
Hey Montrose Patchers! I’m Nicole Charky, your new local editor. I’d like to introduce myself with five quick facts about me.
1. I was born in Pomona, CA and moved to La Crescenta in 6th grade, where I attended Dunsmore Elementary School. The following year I attempted to open my jammed Rosemont Middle School locker. For high school I attended all-girls Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy in La Cañada Flintridge, where I loved wearing a uniform and not brushing my hair before school!
2. I earned my Bachelor’s of Arts in Journalism from Loyola University Chicago and studied under many talented, professional journos. In college I began reporting on community news and crime on Chicago’s North Side at the Loyola Phoenix.
4. Riding bicycles is an obsession of mine, and I’m very interested Glendale’s new master plan for bicycle lanes (more on that to come). In addition, I love seeing performances at local venues, especially at Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock and the Echo and Echoplex.
5. I’m always in the area and up for a chat at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
