Megan BartholomewDigital Manager

Bartholomew is a recent transplant to the Omaha area, and the newest member of the Omaha Magazine team. As digital manager, she handles all online production for the magazine, from social media to digital ad placement—she's the gal to see for all advertisements in the virtual market. Her few years in journalism have molded her into a professional magazine jump-starter, specializing in launching iconic local publications into the digital age. When not in cyberspace, Bartholomew can be found reading novels (paper ones), sniffing for new restaurants with her husband, Ben, or playing fetch with her cat-who-thinks-she’s-a-dog, Ophelia.

Damian IngersollDistribution Manager

Originally from California, Ingersoll and his wife, Samantha, moved to Omaha in 2013 and have enjoyed living here ever since. In 2017, the couple welcomed a baby boy named Hudson, who at age 4 is as rambunctious as ever. Damian taught preschool before he started working for Omaha Magazine and still enjoys helping out at the preschool from time to time.  He is an avid collector of musicians’ autographs and hopes to be able to attend more concerts this year. In his down time, Ingersoll enjoys watching movies, playing classic video games, and doing outdoor projects.

Josefina LozaFreelance Writer

Longtime journalist Loza is a writer, editor, painter, and communication manager who highlights extraordinary people and events happening in her vibrant Latino and Black communities in Omaha. Her areas of interest are parent-child communication, biracial identity formation, and intrapersonal conflict both in the written and visual worlds. She has also written several food reviews. When she’s not creating, this Chicana mother of two is daydreaming about her next painting or adding a ridiculous amount of hashtags to her social media accounts: @lozafina. 

Tara SpencerSenior Editor

As a food industry veteran, Spencer especially enjoys her duties assigning and editing the dining stories for Omaha Magazine. When she’s not working at the magazine or the restaurant, she is likely snuggling with her dog, Jesus, son of Levon, while reading a book or watching Criminal Minds or anything Marvel. Though Spencer loves dining at restaurants, the pandemic put a damper on that. Now she and her partner, Mark, are looking forward to trying all the restaurants on their ever-expanding list and hopefully getting to take a true vacation again soon. (Jesus is not so excited about this.)
