D.C.-based tax reporter
Kat recently joined The Hill Extra Finance. She earned her federal policy and regulation reporting chops as a congressional reporter for Tax Analysts, where she covered a wide range of tax-related topics from the IRS commissioner impeachment efforts to the Treasury Department's controversial proposed debt-equity rules.
She previously wrote for the Current Newspapers, a group of community weekly publications covering Northwest Washington, D.C. She also immersed herself in data journalism, following the money trail in policy and politics as a fellow for the Sunlight Foundation Reporting Group. She also contributed to DCist, Eater DC, Washington Diplomat, Washingtonian, Elevation DC and the Washington Post Express.
Her past life involved graduate school, market research, polling, political research and campaigns, lots of political science courses, and a college newsroom inside an eerily beautiful gothic building that was torn down to expand an "L" station. (Guess where she's from...)
