Lisa Stiffler covers nonprofits, companies and researchers who are applying technology to environmental, energy, health, transit, education and other societal challenges.

Lisa is from the Northwest and a University of Washington alumna twice over, with a background in cell biology that was jettisoned for the excitement and nearly instant gratification of journalism.

Her first real media gig was at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer where for 10 years she primarily covered environmental issues. More recently Lisa worked as a freelancer for the Seattle Times covering the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Other recent endeavors include writing and editing for Seattle’s Child parenting magazine, research for Sightline Institute, and reporting for NPR, MSNBC, Smithsonian Magazine and local news websites.
