Carol Hill was looking for a little something extra when she agreed to work at MaryJanesFarm two years ago. Icing on the cake of life. Dessert!
She already had the great main course, a full-time position as a Web designer at Washington State University. She had a grown son, good friends, a comfortable home, and two loyal companion animals Jack the dog and Koko the cat, who greet her each evening after work sitting side by side on the front porch. But something was missing
I made a decision this year to look for something to add to my life that would contribute to my personal growth and also make a difference in the world ... something I could really be passionate about! And within just a couple of months, I was asked to be the crafts coordinator for the Moscow Renaissance Fair and to help MaryJane design her new magazine ... talk about getting what you ask for!
Carol and MaryJane had developed a mutual admiration for one anothers talents while working together briefly nearly 10 years ago, when MaryJane was just getting started in her organic foods business. MaryJane met with me in December to get my thoughts about what she should look for when replacing graphic artist Jennifer Reid, who left her position at the magazine to start a family, Carol recounts. As soon as we started to talk, I knew that it had to be me.
Carol who had been thoroughly impressed with the magazines first issue and relished another chance to work with MaryJane found that something extra she was looking for at MaryJanesFarm. My dream job has always been to work on a magazine and this magazine fulfills my wildest expectations. Im constantly amazed by MaryJanes unending ideas, great recipes, and energy to pull it all together ... She has the vision of possibility.
