Working as a newspaper reporter was a dream job for Rochelle Gilken, but that changed as the years passed and the industry shifted gears. “The pay left a lot to be desired, and the stress – oh boy! I have two kids, and I have to say that I couldn’t balance home and work and be happy due to the stress,” says Gilken, who spent six years as a crime reporter for the Palm Beach Post.
