Guest Speaker August 1 – Eileen Flynn DeLaO

I am looking forward to hearing our guest speaker this week, Eileen Flynn DeLaO.  Eileen has been the Religion Writer/Faith Columnist for the Austin American Statesman since 2000 and has been an Adjunct Professor in Journalism and Religion at the University of Texas in Austin since 2007. She has worked as a reporter and editor since 1994 in Massachusetts and Texas. She started her career at the North Adams Transcript in North Adams, Mass., and went on to cover state government and politics in Boston with the MediaNews Group Statehouse bureau. She moved to Austin in 2000, worked part-time as a crime and breaking news reporter at the Austin American-Statesman, co-founded a creative writing group, won 2nd place in a short story contest and in 2002 landed her favorite job so far: writing about religion. She has also waited tables in Amarillo and worked at a scrapyard in Western Massachusetts. Eileen is married to Abe DeLaO is the mother of little Clara.
