About the Author ()

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!

    Josie, thanks for another fine article. Your past articles on public servants including fire, police and military veterans have been highly appreciated. I had the privilege of having one done on me several years ago. Good to see you "in the news" and still doing superb work in your craft. Best wishes to you as you continue your love of writing and reporting. Thanks for this article on the fireman and the many tributes to him.
