"Hennessey Communications Principal, Lauri Hennessey, has written a newspaper column for an array of Seattle-area newspapers for more than ten years. This column deals with parenting and family issues and has won awards several times at the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association. The column now runs in the Vashon-Maury Island Beachcomber, the West Seattle Herald, the Highline Times, the Ballard News Tribune and the Federal Way News. As this column has grown in popularity over the years, we have decided to make the column available each month on our website. We will also make other published works available in this section.
Below are columns that have run over the last year. If you would like to find a column that has run earlier, please contact Lauri Hennessey at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, Lauri welcomes feedback. Please email her with any comments or suggestions about the column.
