Just a year ago, May was my first edition as Publisher of Chandler Lifestyle. I had recently moved from the Midwest, retired and felt totally disconnected with my community. I could have never imagined the wonderful journey I was about to begin when I decided to join Lifestyle Publications!
This month is bittersweet for me as we say goodbye to our fabulous Editor, Danielle Accovelli, so that she can move on to the next chapter of her life. I cannot thank her enough for her spirit, professionalism, creativity and desire to bring you the absolutely best magazine in Chandler—or the East Valley, for that matter! She has truly taken our publication to the next level.
But now for the sweet part: I am so excited to have Mindy Haskins joining our team as our new Editor. Mindy has great experience, great ideas and great enthusiasm so I can’t wait to see what she has in store for our readers. Stay tuned for our June edition, where you will get to meet her for the very first time.
There are many things I have learned about Chandler in this past year. One is that this community is absolutely full of amazing women! May is always our focus on the ladies, so what better way than to recognize 14 of the Real Women of Chandler! I think you will agree each of them has their own way of being a true example for our own inspirations.
Happy reading, and I look forward to seeing you around town!
Joyce Selk, Publisher
