Desiree Cahoon, PublisherThe greatest gift is the passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind.
Elizabeth Hardwick (1916 – 2007)
Over the past 27 years I’ve had the privilege of working for the Lake Stevens Journal and meeting some of the most amazing people. I am truly blessed.
Aside from publishing a weekly newspaper I like to travel, garden, listen to a variety of music, dine el fresco, spend time with family, friends and my sweet little pets.
After working for the Newspaper Agency Corp. in Salt Lake City for four years, I got the opportunity to be a stay-at-home to my two beautiful kids, Alex and Katie. When my youngest started kindergarten, I came to work here at the Lake Stevens Journal - that was over seven years ago.
Working and living in this scenic and friendly community is a luxury to my family and spending quality time with them is a priority. We love to play at the lake, go camping, travel and play games.
One of my favorite foods is really tasty fish & chips and the best I have ever tasted were at this great restaurant in Kona, Hawaii called Quinn’s – Almost by the Sea.
I also love reading, scrapbooking and watching sitcoms. Right now, That 70’s Show re-runs are on the top of my “to watch” list.
Connecting with people in my community has always been a life priority, whether it be through PTA, School Board, or volunteering in my community. Working at the Journal has given me access to some really remarkable people in the Lake Stevens community! My biggest passion are my husband and four boys. When I’m not busy with them I like to cross-stitch and beat the neighbors at Texas Hold-em!
I have lived in Lake Stevens for the last 7 years, and involved with the community since 2001. Most recently as the event chair for Relay for Life. I am also currently serving on the Chamber of Commerce board.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for more that 20 years. We have
two children: Alexia (20) and AJ (16).
I enjoy running half marathons. This summer I will be doing my 1st triathlon and in the fall will be running my 1st marathon.
