Pauline’s been a journalist for two decades, covering health care, education and the many disparities that exist in California.
For CapRadio, Pauline produced the podcast “Making Meadowview,” a series of stories about how people in one South Sacramento neighborhood overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Pauline was CapRadio’s health care reporter for four years, a founding reporter for CalMatters and a staff journalist at Kaiser Health News. Her work has aired frequently on NPR, and her byline has appeared in many national and California-based outlets, such as WashingtonPost.com, The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Daily Beast, CNN.com and Scientific American.
But Pauline’s true passion is long-form radio. She’s won multiple regional Edward R. Murrow awards, national recognition from the Society of Professional Journalists and a first-place prize from the Association of Health Care Journalists.
For the better part of a decade, Pauline freelanced from Latin America. Her reporting on melting glaciers in the Ecuadorian Andes was part of a George Polk award-winning radio series in 2006.
When she’s not producing stories, Pauline is getting crafty, practicing the Brazilian martial art of capoeira and chasing around her young daughter.
Pauline has a master's degree in journalism from UC Berkeley.
