The Tribune’s new reporter
Bonnie Remmick has been hired as a reporter at the Pierce County Tribune. Born in Rugby, Remmick lived there until she was 11 when her family moved to Idaho. Recently she has moved back, purchasing the house her parents once owned, to continue pursuing her love of writing back where it started.
Remmick has been writing since she was 9 years old. She has two degrees from Edmonds College, a paralegal degree and a humanities degree. She is currently almost finished with a computer science degree as well. She is also a certified PMP in project management. Her jobs have always involved writing, though her writing skills are very wide. She’s written grants, magazine articles, technical documents, health care records, and much more. She has worked 20 plus years in software management developing programs for the computer industry. One of her favorite things she’s worked on was when she designed and wrote the requirements for the Boeing flight simulators for their airplanes.
She has chosen to move to article writing because she loves informing others and celebrating people’s lives. She loves the human interest of it.
In her spare time, Remmick enjoys writing and is currently working on a book about a World War II prisoner of war from Seattle. She enjoys being with family, which for her includes a lot of cousins. Her parents have passed, but her aunts and uncles are still here.
Remmick has two married daughters and two grandchildren. She is an animal lover and describes herself as owned by her dog, a Papillon named Toby. She’s also recently taken in a barn cat named Spice.
Now that she has returned to Rugby and to North Dakota, she enjoys exploring the area and getting to know the community. She wants to figure out how she can best serve the community with her many experiences.
