About Sarah


13775975_664110636766_5389623056276519161_nHi, I’m Sarah. I’m a metro reporter for the Los Angeles Times covering breaking news and stories throughout the state. In 2015, I was part of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for the Times’ coverage of the San Bernardino terrorist attack.

Prior to working for the Times, I reported for KCET, the Associated Press and TakePart.com, among other places.

I received my master’s degree in journalism from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, where I focused on Web reporting and digital media. There, I earned the Penny Lernoux Award for International Reporting for the stories I wrote from Dublin and Belfast as part of the Knight Program on Media and Religion. I also won two Los Angeles Press Club Awards for both news and entertainment reporting.

I enjoy long walks on my sub-beat, which includes the Westside of L.A., the Iranian community and religion reporting. If you’ve got story ideas, please feel free to shoot me an email.
