Alison Klein oversees the editorial content and strategy for SeattleMet.com, as well as the magazine's social media accounts. She also shoots photos every now and again.  Before moving to Seattle in 2013, she worked at Voice of America in Washington, D.C. as a photographer and news designer, and was a photo intern at The Washington Post and Boston's The Dig alt weekly before that.  She holds a bachelor's degree in multimedia journalism from Emerson College, but is a lifelong learner of the trade. When not at the office, she's probably (hopefully) doing something outside in the great Northwest.  (Follow her on Twitter or Instagram at @alisonjk.)
