    It’s time for #FiveQuestionsWith, a series to showcase the variety of careers pursued by our graduates.This week we are spotlighting Mary Loftus who graduated from CJC in 1988 with B.S. in Journalism and is the editor of Emory Medicine magazine at Emory University and senior manager for health sciences content at EYP, an architecture and engineering firm.β€œI’d always wanted to be a newspaper reporter, and CJC had an excellent reputation and interesting faculty. I remember hearing once in an elevator at UF, β€œPeople who can’t make it in English lit and writing novels choose to major in journalism.” I had to smile because it was the exact opposite for me. I’d always wanted to be a reporter and work for a daily newspaper, informing the community, inspiring action, and providing a voice to those without. Ends up, that’s exactly what my career in newspapers allowed me to do, first for the Gainesville Sun, then The Ledger in Lakeland, Fla., and finally the NYTimes Feature Production Center in Atlanta (for a total of 15+ years). I switched to institutional journalism a while back and maintain that universities make interesting beats as well,” Loftus shared.Interested in learning more about Loftus and her career?
