About: Kimberly Benedict joined the Cortez Journal in 2008, simply because she needed a job, and quickly discovered a passion for community journalism. A Colorado native, Kimberly has lived in small town Iowa, Los Angeles and Washington D.C., but feels most at home surrounded by the aspens of the San Juan National Forest. With a degree in constitutional law, Kimberly's greatest ambition used to be to manage a national political campaign, or be president of the United States. Her greatest ambition today is to hike the Colorado Trail from beginning to end. Kimberly's favorite pieces to write are those that strike at the heart of the community and tell the stories that most need to be heard. Read More
