Denise MarquezDenise Marquez has been hired as the new business reporter at the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

She writes, “I was offered the job after Matt Dotray, the former business reporter, changed positions at the A-J and left an open slot that I was lucky to be given the opportunity to fill. Matt is now covering the government beat.

:When I was officially told I was hired as the A-J’s business reporter I borrowed my previous employer’s subscription of the A-J and read Matt’s business stories. Let me tell you, it was good stuff. So I know there are big expectations I must uphold with the title that sits behind my name — Denise Marquez, A-J business reporter.

“Since I’ve sort of introduced myself, here’s a little more about me. I grew up in Lovington, New Mexico, graduated high school in 2006 and moved to Washington state to volunteer as a traveling youth minister. In 2010, I became a student at the University of New Mexico and graduated in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in multimedia journalism. Soon after I landed a reporter job in Hobbs.”
