* I won the New York Press Club’s Nellie Bly Award, which honors the city’s best young journalist (me!), for a series of stories, one of which documented a California family’s struggle to remove their daughter’s death photos from the Internet.
* My work at Tumblr, to produce original journalism, was honored by the Webbys; we were also the recipient of two New York Press Club Awards and a James Beard nomination, all for visual storytelling.
* Here, two colleagues and I document the 40th anniversary of a gender discrimination suit against NEWSWEEK—and question how much has changed. That lawsuit, and my story, are now documented in The Good Girls Revolt, a book by Newsweek’s first female senior editor, Lynn Povich.
* I covered the 2010 fight to legalize marijuana in California, and spent time at the country’s only pot school there. The series won first prize from the New York Press Club.
* Here you can see multimedia projects on: our evolving standards of beauty, how much the average woman spends on beauty products, and the extent to which the images we see are airbrushed. This piece to accompany all this, about the role of looks in the workplace, won first prize from the Newswomen’s Club of New York.
* This did not win any awards, but was almost as good: I hosted a NEWSWEEK roundtable with the judges of Project Runway and Tim Gunn told me my outfit was “adorable.” I blushed, then returned the dress to Urban Outfitters for store credit.
* I grew up in Seattle, but had no idea what a crazy big community of polyamorists were living there. This piece almost turned into a reality series, but didn’t quite work out.
* Sometimes I end up producing live events. That’s what I did for the Women and Media panel at Newsweek & The Daily Beast’s Women and the World summit, featuring Arianna Huffington and Tina Brown. I also worked with a team to put together this interactive feature, and oversee this blog, which took home first prize from the Newswomen’s Club of New York.
