Elsa Kerschner has been working in the news industry since 1990.
She graduated from Coopersburg High School and went on to Moravian College, receiving an associate’s degree in business. It provided the typing ability that served her well when she applied for a position with the Times News.
She started with the company in 1990 writing for a new weekly, The Pocono Post, based in Gilbert and covering the Pleasant Valley and Pocono Mountain school districts. Copyediting became part of the job.
During that time, Elsa also wrote for the free tab, The Postscript.
After moving to the Times News building, Elsa began composition work on material for the print shop. Writing expanded into local municipalities and activities.
She enjoys writing for the weekly publications and is most involved with the Northwestern Press, covering activities in the Northwestern Lehigh School District with occasional work on the other seven weeklies.
Her hobbies are reading and horses. She noted that at one time, there were over a thousand books in the house.
