Lizzie Schiffman is a reporter/producer covering Downtown, the Gold Coast, the Loop, River North, the South Loop and Streeterville at DNAinfo Chicago.
Born and raised in the Chicago area, Lizzie takes after her grandfather, who was editor of the Forest Park Review. She studied journalism at Northwestern University's Medill school, where she edited an online newspaper and helped launch a print magazine between reporting stints in Washington, D.C. and New York.
Barring those brief eastward excursions, Lizzie has been rooted in Chicago, contributing to The Chicago Reporter and Chicago Public Radio's Eight Forty-Eight, the now-defunct precursor to The Morning Shift, before joining The Huffington Post, where she was Associate Editor of the Chicago section.
Lizzie lives in Uptown with her boyfriend Patrick and their tabby cat, Scoop.
Fun Fact: Lizzie was a vegetarian for 8 years and a vegan for one before falling off the wagon for one late-night steak. It was worth it.
