Daily Press welcomes new manager
The Craig Daily Press welcomes a new creative services manager, as Laura Vermeulen re-joined the staff Thursday.
Vermeulen, 26, of Steamboat Springs, most recently was an ad designer at the Steamboat Pilot & Today and before that, a designer for the Daily Press’ The Print Shop.
“In that period of time that she worked here, she impressed time and time again with her ability and work ethic,” Daily Press Publisher Bryce Jacobson said of Vermeulen. “So, when I needed a new creative services manager, she was my first pick.”
Vermeulen said she is excited for the opportunity to return to the Daily Press.
“I like this team. I was excited to come back for that reason,” Vermeulen said. “It’s a close group of people to work with. Everyone’s friendly, and we work well together.”
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
Vermeulen will oversee The Print Shop as well as the design and layout of the Daily Press’ advertisements, special sections and the daily newspaper.
Originally from St. Helena, Calif., Vermeulen earned a Bachelor of Arts in art education in 2005 from Humboldt State University in Arcata, Calif., and a Master of Arts in teaching in 2009 from Colorado College in Colorado Springs.
She has experience as an art teacher at Rangely Junior/Senior High School and as a paraprofessional and school-based mentor at Steamboat Springs Middle School.
She and her fiancé, Chris Tamucci, have two dogs, Trinity and Frida.
Jacobson said Vermeulen will telecommute from Steamboat Springs on occasion, which “makes it possible for us to have that quality of a manager.”
“Laura brings commitment to customers, excellent design skills and the necessary ability to implement proficient procedures that will, in the end, benefit our advertising customers and readers,” he said.
