When I started Editorially Yours, I envisioned it as a way to give readers a little more insight behind the scenes at Wasabi Media Group. I think I have accomplished that goal in some ways. What I realized recently, though, is that most of the insight has been focused on me. With our combination of team members and specialists numbering thirty-six, it seems about time to introduce some of them to all of you.
Starting this Monday and continuing on the third Monday of every month, I will be introducing a member of the WMG team to you. We start this article series with Bea V., who has been part of our team since the company’s inception.
MPK: When you aren’t writing articles, what do you like to do with your free time?
BV: What free time? Just kidding, I make sure to get some free time in my life otherwise I think I would go crazy! On a normal work week, my free time
usually ends up getting donated to my attention loving pets. I also make time to get some form of exercise in every day. I’ve been following the p90x workouts, but recently completed it, now so I usually run or do yoga. On the weekends I drive in to Boston to meet up with friends from school
or I head up to a mountain in New England to either hike or ski (or both!).
MPK: Which publication is your favorite to write for?
BV: My favorite publication to write for is Good Life Review because I love to provide tips and tricks for travelers. I’ve essentially been a travel agent for a lot of my friends who are looking to book on a budget and I’ve loved doing that! I also enjoy writing for Inspector Electra because it keeps me in the loop about the nifty gadgets out there. I learn a lot while writing!
MPK: You have seen much of the world (and written about it). What destination is highest on your to-visit list?
BV: Yikes, that’s a tough one. Europe has been on my mind recently, so I will have to go with the fjords in Norway. I would love to road trip that coast
from Haugsted, to Oslo, to Copenhagen. However, my dream destination is New Zealand.
MPK: One of your more popular articles debated donuts versus bagels. Which do you prefer?
BV: I actually haven’t had a donut for over 5 years; it’s probably closer to 10 at this point. I will admit that I have had munchkins! On the other hand, I try to avoid bagels as well. I wrote that article a while back and have enjoyed reading the comments, but I’m still not sure where I stand on either. They both have pros and cons. For example, the bagel will keep you fuller longer and the donuts have pretty terrible sugar. However, like most things in life, in the long run, both are okay in moderation.
MPK: What fun fact would our readers be surprised to learn about you?
BV: I’ve recently applied to become a US citizen! I really want to go into the field of aviation, but I’m not quite sure what I want to do yet. It could range from anywhere between airline scheduling optimization to air traffic controlling. The only thing holding me back is the fact that I’m a permanent resident and not a citizen!
