Rebecca Theim is a former staff writer with the Times-Picayune and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Following a fifteen-year career in corporate PR after leaving the newspaper business, she became involved in the ultimately unsuccessful efforts to save daily publication of the Times-Picayune and founded the nonprofit dashTHIRTYdash to raise awareness about the changes at the newspaper and money for the hundreds of employees who lost their jobs. A portion of the post-expense proceeds of this book will benefit dashTHIRTYdash.
Theim earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism and master’s degree in marketing communications from Northwestern University, and a second master’s degree in journalism from Ohio State University, where she was a fellow in the then-yearlong Kiplinger Mid-Career Program in Public Affairs Reporting endowed by the Kiplinger media family. She and her family live near Las Vegas, but her heart has returned to New Orleans.
