About Mandy Jenkins
I am a journalist, nerd, wife and friend to animals.
In May 2011, I started as Social News Editor for The Huffington Post
, which is a very exciting transition from local to national news, focusing specifically on politics coming up on the 2012 election cycle. I also am part of a team managing OfftheBus, the HuffPosts’s citizen journalism program centered on covering election news.
Prior to The Huffington Post, I was the social media producer for TBD
, a local news start-up that launched in August 2010 (and subsequently eliminated my job six months later). I wrote a lot about TBD’s experimental ideas and happenings in the time I was there on my blog
, so check that out if you’d like.
I could go into all my professional history before this point, but instead I’ll just refer you to my resumé
for the gritty details. I’ve been working in online news my entire career so far, so you’ll see no rueful reminiscing about ink-stained fingers from me.
Aside from my full-time job, I am also an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, teaching social media for journalists and entrepreneurial journalism to graduate students. I also do freelance skills training in social media and mobile tools for journalists through a few journalism associations.
