A Gardner-Webb University alumna has found a way to combine her lifelong love of reading and writing into a career in journalism. Jennifer Ortiz ’15 had the opportunity to prepare for the field by writing and editing for GWU-Today, Gardner-Webb’s student-run online news publication. According to Ortiz, this experience was beneficial to her because many aspects of journalism and other media careers must be learned by doing.
