Editor-in-Chief | "Award-winning Photojournalist"

Marielle Sumergido serves as the Editor-in-Chief and is a School of Nursing junior, minoring in Public Health. She has previously slaved for the Targum as a Staff Photographer, Social Media Editor and Online Editor, becoming a regional winner for her news photography. Her likes include Nightwing, Chipotle, the color red, Mary Ellen Cagnassola and the satisfying feeling of removing your bra at the end of a long day. When she’s not at work, you can find her sleeping at odd hours of the day. Her favorite scent is pink grapefruit, and she uses Colgate Total toothpaste (not the gel, the paste) — minty fresh! You may contact her via electronic mail at eic@dailytargum.com.

However, she still sees no end to her expansive midwifery career — or at least avoids the thought of retirement. Diegmann, director of the Nurse Midwifery Program at Rutgers, has recently earned the Lester Z. Lieberman Humanism in Healthcare Award, which is given to individuals for “treating patients and their families with exceptional kindness, compassion, and respect,” according to the School of Nursing website.
