Jamie Smith Hopkins is the environment editor and a senior reporter for the Center for Public Integrity. Her work includes investigations about America’s fossil fuel export boom, the federal government’s failure to stop a decades-long string of deaths from a widely available consumer product, and “super polluter” industrial sites pumping out large amounts of toxic air pollution and climate-warming greenhouse gases. Hopkins joined Public Integrity in 2014. Previously, she spent 15 years as a reporter for The Baltimore Sun. Honors for her stories include awards from the Society of Environmental Journalists, the Education Writers Association and the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing. Kristine Villanueva is the Center for Public Integrity’s audience engagement editor. Before that, she was an audience engagement fellow at POLITICO, where she launched a crowdsourced project on marijuana policy. She holds a B.A from Rutgers University-Newark, and an M.A in social journalism from the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism. Her graduate school practicum earned her a spot on MediaShift’s 2017 list for leaders in media metrics for a print zine on underground punk in New York City with a text-in feature for feedback. She has also reported on economic inequality and social justice issues in the state of New Jersey.
