Jeanette Beebe is a journalist focused on medicine, tech, and the politics and policies that propel health care.


Her reporting has appeared in Forbes, Scientific American, The Daily Beast, MarketWatch, Mental Floss, MSN, Next Avenue, WHYY, and Fast Company, where her reporting on health data privacy was featured as one of the Aspen Institute's “Five Best Ideas of the Day.

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. 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, and she holds an A.B. from Princeton. She’s also a Pushcart- and Best New Poets-nominated writer who serves as Nat. Brut’s Engagement Editor.

Born and raised in Iowa, Jeanette has lived in Chicago, New York, and Berlin (twice). Now based in central Jersey, halfway between New York and Philly, she is a long-time commuter — and she tries to travel light.
