Nadine Wandzilak (Open Post)

Nadine Wandzilak

Nadine Wandzilak has practiced community journalism for about a dozen years, in Reading, Stoneham, Middleton and Melrose. She has covered those communities top to bottom, from meetings to features to obituaries, writing about civic issues and other things that residents tell her are important to them. That could be a proposed change in a municipal policy, for example, and residents' reactions, or a feature about an interesting resident or group, someone celebrating a milestone anniversary or someone doing something "ordinary" with a unique twist. Wandzilak graduated from Boston University's then-named School of Public Communication with a bachelor of science degree in journalism.
