The Journal Scene is pleased to announce the addition of A.M. Sheehan to its editorial staff.
Sheehan will take over both the education and crime beats, and write features as well.
A native of New Hampshire, Sheehan comes to the Journal Scene from western Maine where she most recently was editor of the weekly newspaper the Advertiser Democrat.
A 30-year veteran editor, Sheehan decided to head south looking for warmer weather and an opportunity to focus on writing.
A winner of numerous awards including Maine Journalist of the Year, The George Polk Award, Michael Kelly Award finalist, and a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer for Local Reporting, she is looking forward to learning all about Summerville and the greater Dorchester area, its history, its people and what makes it special.
“Anne brings with her a wealth of knowledge and veteran reporter’s experience that are difficult to find,” said Publisher Ellen Priest. “We are so excited to have her join our staff.”
Sheehan can be reached at 486-1107 or email@example.com
