Jill Castellano is an investigative data coordinator for inewsource. When she's not deep in a spreadsheet or holed up reporting and writing her next story, she's probably hiking, running or rock climbing. She also loves playing board games and discussing the latest chapters with her book club.
Jill graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with degrees in psychology and criminology, although she likes to say she majored in the school newspaper, since she was editor-in-chief of the Daily Pennsylvanian. She has worked for The Salt Lake Tribune, The Desert Sun and USA TODAY, earning a Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting in 2018 for her work on the deaths of undocumented border crossers. Her passion is shedding light on injustices and holding the powerful accountable.
