Jen Sabella

Deputy Editor and Director of Social Media @jensabella jsabella@dnainfo.com

Jen Sabella is a Deputy Editor and Director of Social Media at DNAinfo.com Chicago.

Before joining the DNAinfo team, Jen was the Chicago Editor at The Huffington Post, where she helped build a loyal local audience by covering everything from “dibs” during snowstorms to a seemingly endless string of political downfalls. She also worked as a wire reporter at the Chicago Sun-Times, covering breaking news, crime and courts.

The South Side native attended Columbia College Chicago, where she learned to write the news at the Columbia Chronicle before scoring an internship at the now-defunct Venus Zine.

Jen moves a lot, but only around Chicago. She has called Mt. Greenwood, Uptown, Humboldt Park, Wicker Park and Logan Square home over the years. She currently lives in Andersonville with her girlfriend, Ali, and their two overweight (yet adorable) cats.

Fun fact: Jen loves pasta so much that she has a mostaccioli noodle tattoo. #carbs4ever
