You’ll be seeing a new face around town this week.
Katie Hendrick is the Longboat Observer’s new community editor. She’ll be covering events, writing features and keeping her eyes and ears open for the latest community news.
Originally from Inverness, Hendrick graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English from Wake Forest University and earned her master’s degree in journalism from the University of Florida. She most recently worked as senior editor for the Society of American Florist’s trade publication Floral Management, in Washington, D.C.
Hendrick may be new in town, but she has local roots:
She is the granddaughter of Sarasota attorney William Harrison, and her mother, Susan Hendrick, grew up in Sarasota.
“I’m delighted to be back in my home state and getting to know the nice people of Longboat Key,” Hendrick said.
