Lisa McClure Guthrie, Chief Editorial Officer

While much of my experience is in news, I have applied my writing and editing skills to a variety of projects in a number of industries.

I’ve also been involved in work for charitable organizations:  writing, editing, social media and communications.

What a journalism professor told me years ago is true:  If you can write, you can work.

I worked for a software company that supported agricultural businesses.  I had to constantly interview subject matter experts at the company and in the industry to educate myself.  Here’s a story about one of the products.

In another piece, I collaborated with a product manager to learn about the exact benefits the software brought to grain businesses.

This piece involved a trip to North Dakota to interview a CEO of a grain business and his staff.  It was updated in 2018, after I had left the company.  My copy picks up in the third paragraph.  I also took the picture.
