Featured journalist: Meredith Rodriguez

Today's featured journalist is Meredith Rodriguez, a reporter with the Chicago Tribune. A graduate of Pepperdine, she's also worked with the Kansas City Star and in Shanghai. She's also trilingual, as she can speak Spanish and "can get by in Mandarin." Props for that!

Here's a sampling of the many beats she's covered: minority issues, features, business news, breaking news, and, understandably -- China. In her own words, she explains her eclectic coverage in this way: "I love the thrill of the breaking news story, but I also love great storytelling."

Be sure to check out her portfolio, which features some excellent coverage on Chicago runaways as well as the recent government shutdown.

Remember: If you also want to be featured here, you should 1) set up your own journalist portfolio 2) get verified and 3) let us know by emailing Kirsten.
