Ovetta Wiggins writes about k-12 education. She came to The Washington Post in 2003 and has covered numerous stories about Prince George's County during that time, including the rise and fall of former County Executive Jack B. Johnson, the county's foreclosure crisis, and the attempt by County Executive Rushern L. Baker III to take over the school system.
Ovetta grew up in New Jersey (which may explain her affinity for shopping malls and her distaste for stopping at a gas station and having to pump her own gas). She graduated from Rutgers University and previously worked at the Philadelphia Inquirer and The Bergen Record.
