Michelle’s path to her dream job as religion reporter began as a kid, trying to make sense of a kosher Jewish home that had three sets of dishes: meat, milk and Chinese food. Her career included a decade of globe-trotting with The Associated Press, covering everything from domestic terrorism in the Arizona desert to debates on male circumcision to Ugandan royalty and how strapped doctors in Afghanistan decide who lives and who dies.

Since January 2006 she’s been the Post’s religion reporter, where she reports on the busy marketplace of American religion. She has a Master’s (in Near Eastern Studies), a husband, a son and just two sets of dishes. The Religion Newswriters Association awarded her its “Religion Reporter of the Year” award for religion writing in large news organizations in 2011 and 2013.
