Meet the Greater Good Media Family.
Jen MacMillen - Publisher
Jen MacMillen began her “good news only” publishing business when she started an employee newsletter for Gannett Outdoor billboard advertising company in 1988 in the San Francisco Bay Area. She had no idea where this would take her because she did it for the fun of it! Today, she publishes four print journals featuring the “good people, good places and good things happening” in two communities in Vermont and one in St. Petersburg, Florida and the newest one in Lebanon, New Hampshire! Seeing the good in people and sharing their stories is what she does best.
Jen lives with her teen daughters, Dewey and Maisie, in Norwich, VT and therefore has no free time, but loves spending what time she does have with them and on growing her good-news-only publishing business.

Jamie Mayo - Distribution Manager
Business owner of Wife For Hire and Reconciled! (cleaning and bookkeeping, respectively); Home delivery and subscription manager for the Northeast Journal. “Frankly, it is an honor to be associated with the Journal. The Northeast Journal has been my only printed form of advertising and some of my best accounts, many of whom I now consider like family, have come from my advertisement in the Journal.”
Jamie came to St. Petersburg in 1979 from Strongsville, Ohio (go Browns!), but has a heart for her hometown St. Petersburg and am grateful for the small ways I am able to serve.
