About Michelle Boorstein
BOORSTEIN, MICHELLE is one of two religion reporters at The Washington Post, which entails covering Washington, DC-area news and trends as well as national and sometimes international religion stories. Covering DC is not unusual, in that there are issues of religious diversity, immigration/religion and a shifting population. It is unusual, of course, in that it's the capital. Boorstein covers how faith and spirituality intersect with everything from lobbying to diplomacy. The Post recently launched a very successful religion opinion blog called On Faith. Boorstein grew up in Newton, MA, and wanted to be a religion reporter since she read Ari Goldman's “The Search for God at Harvard” just after graduating from college in 1992, but detoured for a decade, mostly with the Associated Press, to Phoenix, Afghanistan, Boston, Providence and Nairobi. Faith, spirituality and religion are ripe for multimedia storytelling and Boorstein hopes to rocket herself to a new level of knowledge. She currently lives in Washington DC with her husband. Since buying a home she’s become more of a nester and is learning to cook and garden, though at heart a nomad who likes to travel and kayak.
