About

A native of the Northwest, Paige takes special interest in stories about climate change, our changing culture(s), politics and law. Paige's work has been features on the NPR newscast, All Things Considered, Here and Now, the BBC and local public radio stations throughout the northwest. She has lived and worked in Spokane, Missoula (MT) and Seattle.

Her specialty is writing news under a one day deadline, but she's also stepped onto wildfire scorched land, rappelled from a building, and been to the heart of protests for stories.
