‘Jack of all trades’ masters many

By Elise Anello, Class of 2014

My name is Elise Anello and I am an alumna of Pompano Beach High School, Class of 2014. I served on the staff of the Tornado Times all four years at PBHS, and gained valuable skills that have impacted my career path. 

I graduated from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) in 2018 and am currently pursuing my PhD in Clinical Psychology at Nova Southeastern University. Although I did not ultimately choose a career in journalism, the writing, communication, and collaboration skills I gained working on the newspaper were valuable. The ability to write effectively and efficiently has served me well in graduate school, where writing psychological reports, journal articles, and papers are a part of my day-to-day activities. Working successfully with other students and faculty is something that the Tornado Times taught me well, and definitely a skill applicable to most careers. As a graduate student and future psychologist, I have the privilege of helping others and contributing to research in a meaningful way.

At the Tornado Times, I often served as a “jack of all trades” for the paper, working at different levels and managing different sections wherever needed. Working in this role, I gained valuable insight into my own strengths and limitations, which ultimately led to my current career path. I will always be appreciative of my time at the Tornado Times and the guidance that Dr. Shipe provided to me.
