Isabel is an Associate Producer for The Takeaway.
Besides a brief foray into print, she has made her whole career in public radio, starting with internships at Marketplace and NPR West while at UCLA. She moved back to the Bay Area after graduating with a degree in communication studies and hustled her way into freelancing gigs for KALW and KQED in San Francisco, where she reported on major stories like the new Bay Bridge opening and Black Lives Matter movement in Oakland.
When she's not at work, you can probably find her playing soccer, cooking, or geeking out over her current favorite book/movie/tv show. She absolutely loves Brooklyn but misses California produce terribly.
