As the publisher of Suite Life SoCal Magazine, it is my responsibility to ensure we provide our readers with current information that informs and inspires. Normally this task is not so taxing but this time around, information was changing so fast that I found myself challenged.
The silver lining is that we had planned to produce an issue on health and wellness sometime ago so the production of our Spring issue was actually a cathartic process and forced me to think about how we can best complement the moment. Because I have a passion for Southern California and Suite Life SoCal Magazine, I was determined to put out a publication that both spoke to the needs of the people and highlighted some of the people who are integral in making Southern California great. Despite all of the challenges, I am very much excited and happy about the progress we've made since our launch last summer. Our team of contributors have grown, and I am overjoyed to have on board our new Managing Editor, Ms. Angela R. Jackson. A writer, former managing editor for the Carson Courier and a UCLA alum, Angela is a brilliant find. Her enthusiasm and tenacity to get things done makes my job easier. I am honored to have her as a part of the Suite Life SoCal family. COVID-19 is a menacing foe, but together we shall overcome. I believe that just like a phoenix, the best of what we have to offer will rise from the ashes. In addition to informing and inspiring, our mission is to foster innovation. In short order, I look forward to unveiling our new website for an opportunity to provide dynamic content, resource listings and other services that help foster inventive ideas and enterprising endeavors. From our family to yours, I wish all the best and to keep safe at home or while you are out taking care of your essential errands. Your comments and feedback our welcomed.
