I have had the honor to have Mary Anne Sharkey as a mentor and friend as well as a colleague and partner. Her gentle nudge prompted me to start Hatha Communications in 2010 and her faith and guidance has taught me to stick to my principles and helped me become the woman I am today both personally and professionally.
As a the first female Ohio statehouse bureau chief and the first female Plain Dealer editorial page editor, Mary Anne has opened the door for many women that have come after her – myself included.
Thank you and congratulations, Mary Anne!
