Maureen is currently a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison pursuing a journalism and political science major. She has a strong passion for print journalism and the news, and after graduation aspires to work for a newspaper or magazine.
For two semesters she was the city news editor of one of two UW newspapers, titled The Daily Cardinal. As city editor she was responsible for the paper's local, national and international news, assigned stories to writers, covered key events and edited the content as it came in.
The Cardinal was a daily newspapers therefore she learned how to work with a deadline. Maureen has been working for wispolitics.com, an online news political site, as an intern for one year, and currently became a paid reporter on their staff.
Maureen is also freelancing for the Wisconsin State Journal and will hopefully have an internship with an arts and entertainment publication in Madison, Coreweekly, as well.
She is looking forward to contributing to the Student Operated Press.
