Michelle Daino writes: After freelancing as a reporter and editor for three different companies from 2011 to 2016, I began my new position as the Director of Communications for Mount Saint Mary Academy in Watchung, New Jersey in February 2016.  Prior to that, I held the same position at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison, New Jersey from 2005-2011.  I love promoting the Mount, a Catholic high school for women.  I’ve been fortunate enough to combine my love for public relations and graphic design at the Mount – skills that Moravian always fostered and encouraged.
