Jess Wisloski is the weekend editor for DNAinfo.com New York.
Previously she was the New York City editor for Yahoo!, managing homepage news stories in the metropolis.
Jess started her journalism career at 12, when she founded and published the EMS Eagle at her middle school in Vermont. It folded within a year.
She later graduated from New York University, cut her journalistic teeth at local newsweeklies, including the Village Voice, the Villager and the Brooklyn Papers.
She worked as a desk clerk/stringer for the New York Times, then was hired in 2005 as a staffer at the New York Daily News, where she reported on Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens.
Her proudest work were two in-depth series: one on the growing Queens foreclosure crisis and mortgage scams; the other on displacement of local industries in the wake of city rezonings. She started working fully online at a housing nonprofit in 2008.
Fun Fact: Jess appears three times in the 2011 film "Battle for Brooklyn," about the Atlantic Yards basketball arena. Each time pictured, she is writing for a different publication.
