WASHINGTON, January 8, 2010 - After nearly a decade as a journalist in Washington, Winter Casey has accepted a position at Google where she will be doing strategic policy work.
Casey, a self-described nerd, is looking forward to working for Google at the intersection of technology, policy and business issues.
As Washington is paying more attention to the role of the Internet in our lives and economy, in her new role, she'll break down policy and new research for Google users.
Casey spent nearly five and a half years with National Journal with close to four years spent reporting on international issues for National Journal’s now-dead Technology Daily publication. Recently she has been reporting daily for Broadband Census News, and doing other freelance projects.
After growing up on a small farm in Maine, Casey started getting published on foreign affairs issues as a teenager in Washington, D.C. During a part time summer internship at the international desk of the Washington Times she was published with her own byline around 30 times.
Casey also spent time working and living in Honduras and Italy as a teenager. When she was sixteen years old she began undergraduate studies at Simon’s Rock College of Bard. After graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Casey returned to Washington, D.C., working day and night at school, internships and temporary jobs until she landed at National Journal.
Casey’s work as a journalist has been widely recognized by policymakers and business executives for her ability to present complex issues as fairly and accurately as possible. Her National Journal magazine story, “Why They Lobby,” was used in the 2009-2010 McGraw-Hill textbook on American government. Casey has also worked for the Council on Hemispheric Affairs, The Magazine Group, USA Today, the State Departments International Visitor’s Program, and Universidad Jose Cecilio Del Valle in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
Casey is passionate about journalism living up to traditional standards of excellence presented by journalists who strive to be fair to all sides and stick to reporting the news. She thinks quality journalism is extremely important to democracy and is optimistic media business models will eventually recover to support the medium.
