Brooke Seipel is a reporter currently based in the greater D.C. area and working at The Hill as the Deputy Managing Editor of social media.
She moved to D.C. to work at The New Republic ahead of the 2016 election. Before that, Brooke was a local reporter at The Orange County Register in southern California covering north Orange County as well as general assignment stories.
Brooke got her BA in Journalism from Azusa Pacific University and spent a semester at Oxford University through a study abroad program. At Oxford, she studied international press theory and democracy under a London-based Wall Street Journal reporter and also took a course on Thomas Hardy’s literature (she recommends everyone read Rain on a Grave, Jude the Obscure and In a Museum).
Writing, editing, finding stories and social media-ing etc. are basically her wheelhouse.
