Jeanette Beebe is a journalist focused on medicine, tech, and the politics and policies that propel health care.
Her reporting has appeared in The Daily Beast, Fast Company, Forbes, MarketWatch, Mental Floss, NPR member station WHYY, PBS’s Next Avenue, and Scientific American, where her story on the world's first pizza chef robot was called "creepier than lice and spiders" by The New York Post. Her work has been featured on MSN and the Philadelphia Business Journal, and also by The Guardian, the Aspen Institute, and POLITICO.
As a data-driven journalist who isn’t afraid of statistics, she often focuses on issues that impact women and girls, older people and their caregivers, and the LGBTQ community. Her work as a freelance recordist has been broadcast by the BBC, Gimlet, KALW, WBUR, and NPR/ProPublica’s “Lost Mothers” series, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting.
Jeanette writes a daily newsletter for the Center for Cooperative Media’s NJ News Commons, a network of over 280 local news partners across New Jersey. She is also a Pushcart- and Best New Poets-nominated writer who serves as Nat. Brut’s Engagement Editor. She got her start in journalism at the Daily Princetonian; her background is in arts and cultural reporting.
Born and raised in Iowa, Jeanette has lived briefly in Chicago, New York, and Berlin (twice). She's been based in New Jersey for over a decade — she's a long-time commuter, and she tries to travel light.
