Washington Post hires Cadell from Reuters
As an avid coder and data journalist, most of Cate’s stories include digital investigation elements, though her favorite reporting experiences usually have involved trips to China’s less-travelled corners.
Cate began her career freelancing in Asia, including memorable stints at Mongolia’s Ulaanbaatar Post and Myanmar’s Mizzima News. She earned degrees in journalism and international studies from the University of Technology Sydney, where she occasionally got in trouble for reporting from far-flung places when she should have been in class.
Cate grew up riding horses and raising baby kangaroos on a farm in a rural Australia, which, after years of travel, she still considers to be the best place on earth. She speaks Mandarin, is a certified yoga instructor and plays the banjo. She says her Beijing neighbor will be happy to see the instrument move to Washington.
Please join us in welcoming Cate. She starts Nov. 1.
