Our final reader for our 1st anniversary show knows the larger Southland very well.
Carrie Williams is an editor at Tribune Content Agency, handling syndicated lifestyle content for 20-plus Tribune Publishing titles including the Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun and Denver Post. Prior to working for TCA, Carrie was the managing editor of Today’s Chicago Woman, which ceased publication in January 2015.
Carrie grew up in Crestwood and attended Mother McAuley High School. Not knowing exactly what she wanted to do or where she wanted to go, Carrie attended Loyola University, New York University and Saint Xavier University (where she ultimately graduated with a B.A. in English and a minor in writing).
She continues her passion for writing as a freelancer for the Daily Southtown and by occasionally blogging on her personal website. At www.gettincarriedaway.com, you’ll often find Carrie writing about living with multiple sclerosis. She was diagnosed on September 11, 2015, and is still figuring out how to cope with everything the disease is throwing at her.
Carrie will be reading about how going to school nearby at St. Xav’s led her to travel farther from home than ever before. See her and the rest of our crew this Thursday, April 21st at 730pm at O’Rourke’s Office!
