Hello! I’m Lori Grisham. I am a writer and researcher based in Washington, D.C.
I spent the last four years working at NPR as an editorial researcher. I supported the Ombudsman, also known as the audience representative, by investigating listener and reader complaints about coverage. In December 2013, I took a voluntary buyout from NPR and am in the process of finding my next adventure while I continue my freelance job of managing content on RosanneCash.com.
I have an M.A. in Communication with a focus in journalism and public policy from American University and a B.A. in English and Religion from Mary Washington College. In between getting those degrees, I lived in beautiful Savannah, Ga. working as an admission counselor for the Savannah College of Art and Design. I still dream of warmer winters and Tybee Island, but Washington, D.C., is my true home. In my free time, I love exploring my neighborhood on Capitol Hill, cheering for the Nats, trying out new hobbies, and (at least recently) I’ve been really into baking galettes.
