Staff Writer

I graduated from California Baptist University in April 2021 and was ready for a change of scenery, which is what brought me to North Idaho. Currently, I’m enjoying being newly married. My husband and I spend our weekends huckleberry picking, working on home improvement projects, taking my husky Judah on walks, spoiling our kitten Opal, and making plans to travel while we earn the means to do so.

I love hanging out with family, studying indigenous arts and culture, going on outdoor adventures and creating wood-burning projects. I’m also always down for a casual debate about anything from philosophy and politics to the best local coffee shops.

My childhood was filled with dreams of working in almost every field — archeologist, architect, writer, historian, aviator and mathematician were just a few titles I hoped to hold one day. After my first semester in college, I found myself wondering how choosing a major was ever going to be in the cards for me. But, with a little help from friends and family, I realized that the title of “journalist” is a good title for someone who is interested in a little bit of everything. When you can’t be everything, you can always write about everything.

Coding and flag football aren’t often considered synonymous, but a new episode of a Google series featuring Sandpoint native Annaka McClelland shows just how closely connected the two activities can be. The series, "Job Hoppers," aims to make the real world a little bit less of a mystery for the up-and-coming generation. Creators of the show help young job seekers learn about popular careers — from cyber security to digital marketing and e-commerce — and hear advice from fellow “Gen Zers” on how to break into these fields, Jessica Ryan, Google employee, said.
