Jen MacMillen began her “good news only” publishing business when she started an employee newsletter for Gannett Outdoor billboard advertising company in 1988 in the San Francisco Bay Area. She had no idea where this would take her because she did it for the fun of it! Today, she publishes four print journals featuring the “good people, good places and good things happening” in two communities in Vermont and one in St. Petersburg, Florida and the newest one in Lebanon, New Hampshire! Seeing the good in people and sharing their stories is what she does best.
Jen lives with her teen daughters, Dewey and Maisie, in Norwich, Vt and therefore has no free time, but loves spending what time she does have with them and on growing her good-news-only publishing business.
Dewey MacMillen grew up in Norwich, VT before moving to Boston to attend Northeastern University, where she is currently a Senior. After having completed two “coops,” internships in Northeastern parlance, at EF Education First and NARS Cosmetics, Dewey self-developed a third with her mother, Jen! While she has no idea what she is looking to do after graduation (yet!) she knows that she has a love of fashion and sustainability and hopes to combine the two. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her sister, Maisie, hanging out with friends, and cooking. She has enjoyed the chance to observe her mother’s commitment to spreading positive news around the Upper Valley!
