Here's a photo of me in Iowa

Hello everyone! My name is Francie and I am a graduate student at West Virginia University in the integrated marketing communications program. I am currently enrolled in my fourth 9-week session and I am taking IMC 618: Public Relations and IMC 619: Emerging Media & the Market. I am:

  • a resident of Iowa but a native Chicagoan
  • a graduate of the University of Missouri
  • a Boston Red Sox fan
  • not French, even though my name sounds French. I do like France, however. I will be visiting France and Monaco as part of a 12-day cruise this fall. I have been to Paris, in 2002.
I will triumph! At the Arc de Triomphe.

I will triumph! At the Arc de Triomphe.

I am also an animal lover. I have two cats, Carter and Lucy. And a husband, Dan, who is a photojournalist. We met in college and got married on March 25, 2006 in Savannah, Georgia, where we were living at the time. I currently work at The Quad-City Times as Page 1 editor. I edit stories and layout Page A1 primarily.

Oh and about the name of this blog: I got the idea from the disgraced former governor of my home state of Illinois: Rod Blagojevich. “Kvetch” in Yiddish means to complain. So I thought it was appropriate.

  1. Hey Francie!

    Great photo, although I’ll overlook the Sox fan thing πŸ˜‰
    I’ve wanted to get to France but just haven’t had the money or time. I suppose I’ll have to just take the French experience at EPCOT at Disney for now!

    I look forward to seeing how everyone blogs as compared to the more formal setting of the discussion posts!
