Carina Woudenberg

Carina’s last reporting venture took place on the San Mateo County Coastside where she reported on everything from politics to pumpkins for the Half Moon Bay Review. Carina was also called on to cover cannabis, public safety and big-wave surfing. She believes that this variety is part of what makes life as a reporter so exciting.

Carina especially enjoys writing about social justice issues, environmentalism and people who are unabashedly passionate about what they do. She also likes to dabble in photography and video journalism and her writing and videography have each garnered California Newspaper Publishers Association awards.

Carina and her husband moved to San Jose in the fall of 2018 and Carina has been enjoying the opportunity to learn more about the city through her reporting for San José Spotlight. The couple is expecting their first child — a daughter — in March 2019.
