Lorraine Woellert, who has been with Politico for the past six years, has left the news organization.

In a note, she wrote:

I’ll be taking a sabbatical, then jumping back into the fray in some capacity, ideally covering housing or economics. Please add my personal email to your lists! I’m still in D.C. and always up for a beverage or lunch, so let’s keep in touch. Don’t be shy.

Woellert has been reporting on ESG and sustainability with a focus on financial services and corporate coverage. She previously was Politico’s sustainability policy editor.

Woellert hasalso  served as a financial services reporter, a White House reporter and Florida editor at Politico . As Florida editor, Lorraine has guided a hard-charging team in the lead up to the election in this key battleground state while also editing policy stories in the sustainability realm.

She covered the D.C. economy, Capitol Hill and trade for The Washington Times, then lobbying and politics at BusinessWeek. She joined Bloomberg in 2007, covering the election, congressional oversight and investigations after the financial crisis, housing and the economic recovery. She’s a co-author of a technology policy book, “Chasing Moore’s Law.”
