Danielle VonOhlen

Danielle VonOhlen has joined the Times-Gazette staff in the display advertising department.

"The Times-Gazette is pleased to announce that Danielle has joined our sales team as an advertising executive," said Publisher William Mitchell. "Danielle brings to the sales department a diverse background in sales, marketing and public relations."

With ad copy in her hand, VonOhlen revealed how blessed she feels to wake up in the morning and go to an enjoyable job. She says she's learning a lot each day about daily newspaper operations at the Times-Gazette.

Ready to assist

"With over 15 years of advertising and marketing experience, I am very excited to come into a position that allows me to utilize my skills to help the community," said VonOhlen.

"I'm here to assist businesses with strategic newspaper campaigns within their budget that will gain results."

A graduate of Franklin County High School, VonOhlen formerly worked for an area real estate firm. She later moved to Murfreesboro, where she attended Middle Tennessee State University in pursuit of her bachelor of science in business and realtor's license.

During her MTSU years, VonOhlen could be found in downtown Nashville singing classic rock ballads at the infamous Lonnie's Western Room.

Major loss

Six years ago, her life turned in a different direction. Though it was a sad time, the single mother said she actually gained more inner peace along the way.

"About six years ago, I moved back to this area to care for my mother, Linda, who unfortunately passed of metastasized breast cancer on March 22, 2015. During this time, I rekindled my joy for the country by having some solitude in the woods on my 4-wheeler or at the lake with my fishing pole with my fiance and children. God and family are important to me."

With Breast Cancer Awareness Month coming up in October, VonOhlen emphasizes that everyone should get necessary checkups. Because she believes toxins are linked to cancer, VonOhlen is passionate about bringing awareness to the issue and to finding solutions.

"I thank the Shelbyville Times-Gazette for this opportunity," said VonOhlen. "I look forward to knowing all of my customers and serving their marketing and advertising needs.
