Featured journalist: Mai Hoang
For Monday's featured journalist we're pleased to introduce Mai Hoang, a business reporter with the Yakima Herald-Republic. Based in Yakima, Washington, she covers everything from agribusiness to retail to real estate to employment. In the past, Hoang has boasted bylines in the Orlando Sentinel, Star Tribune, and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Nowadays, though, her twitterfeed is full of Yakima-related headlines, with her portfolio rife with stories like "Yakima Valley winemakers hope Gallo acquisitions will raise stature of state industry" and "Yakima nonprofit dreams big about former mill site."
In her own words: "My focus as a business reporter is to write stories and provide content that help the newspaper's readers understand how business affects them on a daily basis." A worthy endeavor, indeed. For all things business (and Yakima!) be sure to stop by her twitterfeed.
