The Grand Junction Free Press is pleased to announce the addition of two new staff members to its sales team: Nathan Watchman and Stephanie Soule.

According to Watchman, he is a graduate of Colorado Mesa University and an active member of the award-winning fire arts circus troupe, Illumicirque. He has a 12-year-old daughter, Laila, with his wife, Sophia.

“Born in Honoloulu, Hawaii, and growing up in an Army family, I have had the opportunity to live in six different states before choosing the Grand Valley as home in 1998,” Watchman said. “I love to get out to my bike, fly stunt kites, take yoga classes, or sit back for a beer on the patio.”

Soule, who previously worked for the Free Press during its inception almost a decade ago, moved to Grand Junction from Colorado’s Front Range in 2004. She enjoys life in the Grand Valley with her family, including a 9-year-old son, Conner, and variety of animals — a dog, a cat, and five horses. In her free time, Soule is an active dressage rider and judge.

“The Free Press is happy to welcome new hires to our team,” said Ben Rogers, Free Press general manager. “With the addition of Stephanie and Nathan, we are well positioned for the future. We will be able to better serve and support our advertisers and business partners, and we will continue to provide our community with the great news and information it has come to expect from us.”
