“I have come to know Mariah under the context of my position as Editor with the Renville County Register. In my experience, Mariah is a thoughtful, competent journalist who is passionately driven by a commitment to her craft and a love of community. Her writing and photography was professional, polished and delivered on-time; and she is equally capable of finding her own stories as she is completing an assignment. Beyond that, Mariah is a positive, jovial, intelligent presence always willing to provide a helpful hand or a new perspective. She would be a welcome addition to any team.”

Her communication and public relations skills were excellent. She dug right in and helped in the development of programs, a community survey, grant writing and up to date work on our FaceBook Page and Website. She worked tirelessly for the Centre, and I highly recommend her.”
