Bio

Jeanette Beebe is a journalist focused on aging, health care, and tech. She supported The COVID Tracking Project at The Atlantic for a year as a reporter and editorial team member, soon after its launch in March 2020. Her reporting has appeared in Fast Company, The Daily Beast, Scientific American, TIME, Medscape, Consumer Reports, Mental Floss, and the PBS website Next Avenue.

She also works as an audio storyteller, from reporting for NPR member station WHYY to producing for Darknet Diaries, a cybercrime podcast. Her work as a freelance recordist/producer has been broadcast by the BBC, Gimlet Media, and NPR/ProPublica’s “Lost Mothers” series.

She got her start in journalism at the Daily Princetonian, where she interviewed voting machine researchers who later sounded an alarm that made international headlines. She served as an M.A. Scholar at NYU’s Science, Health, & Environmental Reporting Program for one semester, and she holds an A.B. in English with certificates in Creative Writing and Gender & Sexuality Studies from Princeton University.

Born and raised in Iowa, she has lived in Chicago, New York City, and Berlin (twice). After living in NJ as a long-time commuter between Philly and NYC, she is now based in Akron, Ohio’s Highland Square neighborhood.
