Goulet started with Times Community News as the education reporter
at the Daily Pilot in Costa Mesa in 1999. She was promoted to city

"I have been continually impressed with Danette's abilities as a

professionalism she will bring to her new assignment."
Goulet, from Concord, Mass., will oversee all editorial aspects of
the Glendale-based publications, including the city, sports, photo,
copy and design desks. Goulet received a degree in English and
communications at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn.
