Jill has been a reporter in Alaska for a decade, first as a broadcaster for the CBS and NBC affiliates in Anchorage before jumping ship in 2009 to write for Alaska Dispatch. She reports on a wide range of topics, from rural Alaska to businesses to politics to social issues. Although she thinks the title investigative journalist is overused, Jill enjoys digging through documents, nosing through public databases, and even writing her own court filings to obtain information. Covering the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is an annual favorite of hers, as is traveling beyond Anchorage to take in the rest of the state. Jill lives and works in Anchorage with her family, two dogs and a menacing cat.
