I’m excited to introduce Julia Hess, our newest member of the My MI team. Julia joins us as as our Calendar & Events Editor and will be contributing our weekly event round-up posts as well as other special event posts and feature articles.

Learn more about Julia
Julia Hess is a freelance writer inspired by her vibrant community, arts and culture, and food. Even though she’s a recent transplant from Southern California, she’s been in love with the Pacific Northwest since her initial visit years ago – the fresh air and dozens of Thai restaurants won her heart. After receiving her Master of Arts in English from California State University, Fullerton, she moved up to Seattle with her husband, and she currently works part-time as a copywriter for Tavour, a company that connects small craft breweries to craft beer fans. When she’s not reading or writing in a local coffee shop, Julia loves to try new restaurants and go on hikes in the local mountain ranges with her husband and friends.

Our growing team
Julia joins the team as My MI approaches its 2.5 year mark (we launched in September 2014).  We have between 3,000 and 4,000 unique visitors to this site per month and approximately 1100 subscribers to our weekly newsletter. We look forward to working together to bring you all the exciting activities and events happening in our vibrant community of Mercer Island, Washington.

Please join me in welcoming Julia to My MI!
