Rebecca Woolington - Investigative reporter

Investigative reporter

I joined the investigative team at the Times in 2018 to cover the environment and climate change. I’m a native Oregonian, who spent eight years working at my hometown paper in Portland before coming to Florida. I’m passionate about holding the powerful accountable, bringing wrongdoing to light and listening to people who have been overlooked.
