Kat Lucero

Kat is a healthcare and tax reporter for The Hill Extra, the policy and regulatory arm for The Hill newspaper. She came from Tax Notes and 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 included graduate school, market research, political campaigns and a college newsroom inside an eerily beautiful gothic building that was torn down to expand an "L" station. (Guess where she's from...)
