Welcome to our new Environment Reporter, Kendra Chamberlain

You may have noticed a new byline earlier this week on our story about the New Mexico Environment Department deciding not to move the Los Alamos National Laboratory Oversight Bureau from Los Alamos: Kendra Chamberlain.

Chamberlain is our new Environment Reporter at NM Political Report, talking over from the foundation set by Laura Paskus over the last two years. She will lead our coverage of environmental issues around the state and write the weekly NM Environment Review email newsletter.

Chamberlain will continue covering much of what Paskus did over the past two years, but will also expand our coverage with other environment issues.

Chamberlain, who grew up in Santa Fe before going to college in New York and began her journalism career in Louisiana. She previously worked as a space reporter and analyst for The Enterprise Orbit, the news desk editor at Dig Baton Rouge and freelanced for outlets like Ensia Magazine and DeSmogBlog.

We want to thank Chamberlain for joining us and look forward to working with her.
