I’m Rebecca, and I report on real estate and occasionally write creative content. I’m also an administrative assistant for a software development cooperative company. I recently relocated to Boulder, CO to enjoy the mountains. Now, I'm searching for journalism and administrative opportunities in Boulder and Colorado’s Front Range.
As a reporter for The Wall Street Journal’s Greater New York section for four years, I covered philanthropy and the arts. I was starstruck by Gay Talese, who helped to define literary journalism, and called me (as a freelancer) “Rupert Murdoch’s illegitimate granddaughter.” At the same time, I’m equally interested in the people who make a difference in their community—the everyday heroes—and that’s why I continue seeking out new stories to tell. My five-year plan (or 50-year plan, more likely) is to contribute to the sustainability of journalism, either on the editorial side or the business side.
As an administrative assistant for the past five years, I’ve fulfilled a variety of different tasks as needed while adapting to a new industry. In any given day, I would handle bookkeeping independently, and event coordination and meeting facilitation as a part of the team. Being the behind-the-scenes support to a genius team is truly satisfying in and of itself.
