Sales assistant joins Valley Record
The Snoqualmie Valley Record is pleased to have LeeAnn Hansen-Dewey join its staff as its sales assistant, filling the position vacated by Adrienne Turley.
Hansen-Dewey joined the newspaper in mid-November, providing support for advertising manager Leesa McKay by proofing ads, completing insertion orders, taking phone calls and offering general assistance.
"I want to add whatever I can to the quality of the newspaper," she said.
Hansen-Dewey noted that she has always had a love for journalism, starting with being involved with her high school's newspaper.
Plus, the position had its appeal because the part-time job works with her son's school schedule, she added.
Hansen-Dewey began her professional career as an executive secretary. She earned her bachelor's degree in social work from the University of Washington in 1986, working as a social worker until 2002. She also has a partial master's degree in teaching. She was employed as an instructional assistant and substituted in the Riverview School District and the Snoqualmie Valley School District until 2004.
Growing up all over Washington State, Hansen-Dewey moved to Fall City in 1997 with her husband Steve. Her son Christian, 10, attends Fall City Elementary School. Her family and extended family have been in the area for more than 25 years.
"LeeAnn is a very energetic addition to the staff. She has a very customer-friendly personality and quick wit, which fits in well," said Valley Record publisher Jim McKiernan.
