Shelby Fisher joins the Wright County Monitor team

Although Shelby Fisher has lived in Eagle Grove for about a year, she is new to the Wright County Monitor newspaper team, and we’re excited to introduce her around. In this role, Fisher will also be serving our sister newspaper, the Eagle Grove Eagle.

Fisher is a graduate of Ames High School and the University of Iowa, and is now proud to say an Eagle Grove resident. She said it was the location of her mom and step-dad that brought her to this area while she searched for a job in the publishing industry. When the marketing consultant position opened at the hometown newspaper, she knew it was the career path she had been searching for.

“It’s an opportunity not only to learn more about the communities, but to also get to know people here better,” Fisher said of accepting the position. “When I saw it advertised, I could easily imagine myself working in this job.”

Fisher’s first day as part of the Wright County Monitor and Eagle Grove Eagle team was Thursday, July 19.

“As a young professional, I believe I can bring new ideas, enthusiasm, and an optimistic belief in what advertisers and the communities can achieve,” she said. “I think the businesses have untapped potential...It’s not just about sales, it’s about building relationships and a rapport with them.”
