A former editor of Eating Well magazine is the new editor of Vermont Life.
Mary Hegerty Nowlan succeeds Tom Slayton as editor of the state’s quarterly magazine.
Slayton retired in February after 23 years at Vermont Life.
Nowlan is a graduate of Dartmouth College and has a master’s degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
The state made the announcement in a press release this afternoon.
Nowlan will be the seventh editor of the magazine.
She says that she respects Vermont Life’s traditions and will undertake any editorial changes slowly.
