Welcoming Mollia Jewett to the WPR

STORY - MolliaA new face is welcomed at the Pioneer Review.

Mollia Jewett of Williams has joined the news and office staff Monday, adding new features, more coverage, and opportunities.

“I am excited to add Mollia as a staff member,” said Owner and Publisher, Lloyd Green Jr., “by adding Mollia I can continue focusing the growth of our publication and expanding our coverage.”

Mollia is born and raised in Colusa County. She attended Williams Elementary School and later graduated from Colusa High School.

“I am excited at the new opportunity,” said Jewett, “I love that the job involves writing, and being out in the community. I want to be able to make a difference and to expand the community relationships and improve the tolerance and appreciation of the varieties of culture in our county.”

Jewett comes from a vast background of experience, having worked in marketing and public relations in the Napa Valley Wine Industry. She is also a former educator at Williams Elementary and worked in the health care industry.

She also is a sole-proprietor of Jupiter Farms where she makes handmade soaps and custom jewelry.

“Mollia’s experience is unique, and she brings a high energy that I think will be vastly successful,” said Green, “I have enjoyed working with her these past few weeks as I made the transition to actually having an employee.”

Up until now, the Pioneer Review has never had an employee.

“Mollia’s focus will be working on special projects, assisting with news coverage, and making contacts out in the community,” said Green.

Jewett having not worked at a newspaper prior did some research and was excited at the opportunity.

“I love that there is this burst of pressure with the job,” said Jewett, “I do my best work under pressure as it helps tailor my creativity.”

When asked what her favorite book was, Jewett commented that she enjoyed ‘The Mists of Avalon” a 1983 novel by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

“It is a surprise favorite of mine because it was such a huge book,” said Jewett, “The book relates the Arthurian legends from the perspective of the female characters. It was a fast read and allowed me to grasp fully the history that I didn’t fully understand before.”

Jewett has four dogs, and several cats. She also enjoys volunteering with the Colusa County Arts Council and the Williams Community Center.

Jewett is available at the Pioneer Review office (430 Market Street, STE E, Colusa) on Monday and Thursday. She can be reached at (530) 473-5652 or email mollia@colusacountynews.net.
