Abbey Sussell's Profile

Abbey Sussell was a spring '13 health and safety beat reporter at the Columbia Missourian. She is a Cincinnati native and graduated from the University of Missouri in May with a degree in journalism and Spanish.

Much of Abbey's reporting experience has been focused in areas of health and science. She was a science journalism intern for University of Missouri Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and she interned for the National institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

Before discovering her love of health reporting, she worked as an intern for Inside Columbia Magazine, and she served as the arts and entertainment editor at The Maneater, MU's official student newspaper.

Besides writing, Abbey loves to play Vivaldi pieces on her violin and bike around Columbia. She also enjoys traveling and hopes the next plane ticket she buys is to Latin America.
