Becki Smith

Former journalist Becki Smith has a special interest in telling real stories of real people living life after school. When her son, Jake Smith, graduated from Tisch School of the Arts, Becki drew upon her own experiences and her friendships with successful professionals in New England to create a collection of advice for him to take into the adult world. This very special gift was the inspiration for the book that became Starting Out: Life Lessons for Graduates, revised and expanded for a whole new generation of graduates. Becki is a former executive producer at WCSH6 in Portland, Maine, where she produced the TV shows Bill Greene’s Maine and 207.
