Hi, I'm Nina.

I am a journalist based in Grinnell, Iowa, with a focus on politics and rural reporting. My work has been published in PolitiFact, Ballotpedia and The Daily Yonder. I work as the community editor for the newspaper The Scarlet & Black.

In the past, I've reported full-time for The Kitsap Sun in Bremerton, Washington, part of the USA Today network.

I have worked as a copy editor and am formally trained in AP Style. Prior to working at The Scarlet & Black, I worked as a political science research assistant with Dr. David Schultz at Hamline University, and facilitated outreach and reviewed survey methodology with the Minnesota Department of Education and the Minnesota Legislature.  

I am always on the lookout for opportunities. Always feel free to reach out to me with any news tips or inquiries.
