Noelle Leavitt Riley is the managing editor of the Craig Daily Press and the Saturday Morning Press.

In 2007, she took a reporting position at the Denver Business Journal, covering hospitality, tourism, retail and aviation.
She left the journal in December 2008, to freelance and run the Forget Me Not foundation — an organization that delivers flowers to seniors in nursing homes, letting them know they are not forgotten by society. She started at the Craig Daily Press in May of 2013 and looks forward to continuing her growth in journalism through this position.
