New Moon has hired four new awesome women. Keep reading to learn more about them!

Melissa Harrison, our new Managing Editor for New Moon magazine, comes to us after five years in the nonprofit and higher education world doing print and e-communications. Melissa studied strategic communications at the University of Minnesota where she met her husband Mat (yes, that's with one t) in the Tate Lab of Physics. Seemed only fitting that their first-born be named Tate. Melissa serves on the board of directors for Minnesota Women in Marketing and Communications, is a scrapbooking addict, loves reading and playing the piano (though not simultaneously), and most of all enjoys letting her hair down to be silly with her kids, Tate and Haley. Melissa does most of her work from her home in the Twin Cities area and comes to the Duluth office about once a week.

Marisa McKie is our new Assistant Editor for New Moon magazine. She interned with us this summer and we loved her so much we asked her to come back after being gone for only a week and a half! Currently, Marisa is a student at the University of Minnesota Duluth. She is finishing up her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication, and working on minors in Journalism and Arts in Media. Some of Marisa’s favorite things to do are snowboarding, swimming, reading, camping, and playing music.

Julia Barenboim (aka Julia Barry) is a new Assistant Online Editor for the online experience for girls ages 13-15 that will launch in spring 2008. Julia is really psyched to be joining the New Moon team all the way from her home in New Jersey! (Technology is a wonderful thing!) Julia has a BA in women's studies/multimedia from Sarah Lawrence College and just finished her MA in interactive media from Goldsmiths College, London (Cheers, mate!). She loves to do ongoing projects for women's advocacy and social change, and won't give up on optimism! Julia treasures friendship, creativity, music, and swimming in lakes.

Christine Lunde is a new Assistant Online Editor for the online experience. Christine recently graduated from Indiana University-Bloomington with a degree in Journalism and concentration in Sociology. A native Duluthian, Christine is thrilled to be working for New Moon Publishing. Outside of New Moon she coaches cross-country running and enjoys Northern Minnesota’s wilderness.

Welcome everyone! We are so excited to have you on board!
