Casey Mendoza

Digital Content Producer

Casey is an enthusiastic admirer of all things journalism-related. Before joining Newsy, she worked as a photojournalist, videographer and sometimes writer for small local newspapers and radio stations. She is recovering from a liberal arts education, but her friends say she "at least comes across as normal now." When she's not working, you can find her tweeting about journalism, politics, television and food.
