There are jobs and then there are
callings. For me, being the publisher of The Profile is
a calling. I’ve been a dedicated reader of the paper since my husband Jay and I
moved to Platt Park in 1996. The high quality editorial content keeps me well
informed about what’s happening at a neighborhood level and advertisements
encourage me to patronize local businesses.
publisher jill farschmAn has been a
resident of the Platt Park neighborhood along with her husband, Jay, since
1996. Farschman brings considerable experience in newspaper publishing and
digital media to her new role, and hopes to build on the foundation laid by
decades of Profile staffers as she shepherds the paper into the brave
new world of print/on-line journalism.

location of Bromwell Elementary, whose Cherry Creek North home was also
undergoing major reconstruction.
