We’re thrilled to welcome Naomi Tomky as My Mercer Island’s new editor. Tomky has been a long-time writer for this publication – most recently, she had the scoop on the upcoming opening of Vivienne’s Bistro on Mercer Island.

Tomky is now managing the My MI editorial calendar and building a team of talented writers. We have more exciting stories in the works, and we look forward to keeping you updated on local business news, events, activities, resources, and much more.

As always, we welcome your comments and feedback, community insights, news tips, story ideas, and great photos from around the island. Get in touch with Tomky at [email protected].
