Carol Smith covers health and social justice for Investigate West. While an enterprise reporter for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, she covered a variety of beats, including science and medicine, the working poor, returning veterans, and most recently, mental illness and society. She is known for combining a compelling storytelling approach with watchdog reporting. Her work was a 2006 finalist for the PEN Literary awards, and was also included in “The Best Creative Nonfiction,” published in 2007 by W. W. Norton & Company. Carol has been a co-finalist for Harvard University’s Goldsmith Prize in Investigative Journalism. Her 2008 story on Washington state’s broken mental health system won a 2009 Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. When she isn’t busy with journalism, Carol loves to dance and teach Argentine tango.
