Description

Rachelle Dickerson began her career in print journalism, working as a copy editor at major American newspapers such as Newsday, the Los Angeles Times, the Houston Chronicle and The Star-Ledger. In between, she taught language arts and journalism in the New York City public school system. 

After leaving the newspaper industry, she decided to become a lawyer, and earned her juris doctor from the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University in Houston.

Currently, she is communications manager for Missouri City, a small city in Texas that’s a short drive from Houston. Rachelle assists in managing the city’s day-to-day integrated communications, marketing and branding operations.

Rachelle is a native Texan, but she was raised in Brooklyn, New York, and I am delighted to have her as a guest on the podcast. I began our conversation by asking her about one of my favorite topics: newsroom diversity.
