Please join me in welcoming our new tax and trade staff writer: Kelsey Snell.
Kelsey comes to us from NPR, where she is finishing up a couple of short-term gigs at “Weekend All Things Considered” and lending a hand on their national desk. A graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, she also has a bachelorÂ’s degree from DePaul University.
While at Medill and its news service, she wrote national stories from Chicago and Washington for McClatchy Newspapers, Politics Daily, and WAMU. SheÂ’s spent time writing and editing for web, print and radio, so sheÂ’ll fit right in with our increasingly multiplatform newsroom.
From her educational pedigree, you might guess sheÂ’s a Chicago native, and you’d be right. For those of you keeping score at home, sheÂ’s a Cubs fan.
She starts two weeks from today, Sept. 27th.
