About Me
Diane Joy Schmidt has been a regular correspondent and columnist since 2008 for the New Mexico Jewish Link, the Gallup Independent, and a recent contributor to Lilith, Hadassah Magazine, and the Intermountain Jewish News. Her columns and articles have received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, the American Jewish Press Association's Rockower Awards, the Arizona Press Association, the Native American Journalists Association, and New Mexico Press Women. She grew up on Chicago's North Shore in the traditions of Reform Judaism, is anchored by her memories of the fireflies at Union Institute camp and the Big Dipper over Lake Michigan, and is an admirer of all things spiritually resonant.
