Hello Patch Readers!
I'm the new editor for Lake Zurich Patch, taking over for the wonderful and talented Korrina Grom who has moved to the Libertyville Patch.
I have been with Patch.com since November 2010 as the At Large Editor (ALE) for the northwest suburbs. I am very excited to be the Lake Zurich Local Editor as Lake Zurich is one of my very favorite Patch towns, and my favorite town to shop in.
As the ALE, I filled in at Lake Zurich Patch as temporary editor in the past. I have covered issues in the Lake Zurich area including the . I'm also the editor who writes the news roundup and I recently worked on a series about Sustainable Food and Local Farming.
I grew up in Chicago, but have been a Lake County resident for more than 20 years. I've worked in community news in Lake County for many years and was also the editor of a Lake County parenting magazine.
I'm looking forward to getting to know Lake Zurich better.
If you see me around town, stop by and say hi! I love hearing feedback. Have a story suggestion, idea or just want to share your opinion? Feel free to contact me at Claudia.Lenart@Patch.com.
