"I have spent close to 50 years in journalism and I have never met anyone, including myself, who was so professional at such a young age. Always on time, willing to do any story, anywhere in our sprawling coverage area. She quickly learned our style requirements, followed them flawlessly, then revamped the material we taught her into a memo that we now pass out to all new colleagues." - Pattie Wesley, Editor at Voices Newspaper

"I had the opportunity to clearly witness Gillian's talent and excellent work ethic in the fall semester of 2018, where she was one of my best students in the Introduction to Multimedia Journalism course.

I was impressed by her deep care for journalism ... I believe her skills and passion will carry her far in her career." -Ellie Ismailidou, Supervising Producer & Anchor at Dow Jones
