A graduate of Columbia Journalism School, she writes about social justice, immigration, politics and women’s rights, and has pursued investigations examining everything from violence against transgender women in Central America to an Arkansas law that, if passed, would have forced rape survivors to notify their attacker if seeking an abortion. At Columbia, she graduated with highest honors and was one of five graduates to be honored with a Pulitzer fellowship in support of international reporting. Prior to that, she helped document previously unreported massacres that occurred during the Salvadoran civil war in the 1980s. She holds a B.A. in international studies and journalism from the University of Washington, and her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Narratively, Religion News Service, The Seattle Times and Orange County Register, among others.
