Janine Anderson built a career out of community journalism, at small weeklies, mid-size dailies and hyperlocal websites. She encountered Hearken's public-powered journalism model at a conference in December 2013, and fell in love.
She loves journalism that helps build community through a better understanding of the people within it and the stories they have to share, like this gem from a past life.
Janine grew up in small-town Wisconsin but is decidedly a city girl. When she's not writing (or reading), she's knitting, dancing or helping her favorite local theater company.
She is on team cat, though her life is pet free.
