Today we’d like to introduce you to Maria Dinoia.
Hi Maria, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I started as a freelance writer for the magazine over six years ago. When the previous editor left to pursue other endeavors, I was offered the position and jumped at the chance. I’ve been in the editor role for almost five years now and love it!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Nothing is ever a smooth road! I went through three publisher changes during my tenure. The most recent publisher, Athena West has been at the helm for the last four years and since she’s taken over, it’s been smooth sailing. We work incredibly well together.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I love telling people’s stories! Everyone has one. I’m proud of how I tell them. I have great relationships with publicists as well who can connect me to high profile people in our area.
We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
Most people are surprised to learn that the magazine doesn’t have an official office! Myself, the publisher, and all affiliated with the magazine work from home. We always have even before Covid.
