Mandy Jenkins is currently a John. S. Knight Fellow at Stanford University. Prior to this, she was Head of News at Storyful, the leading social news and insights agency. Mandy managed a team of 60+ social journalists who worked with the world’s top newsrooms in surfacing, verifying and acquiring eyewitness journalism and debunking disinformation.
Before Storyful, she was part of the ground up teams at TBD.com and Digital First Media’s Project Thunderdome – both places where innovation and experimentation was built into the DNA. At the latter, she helped build and eventually manage a 45-person newsroom responsible for producing new products and creating engaging stories through experimental story forms, exceptional multimedia/interactive presentations and innovative data journalism. Earlier in her career, she was among the first social media editors for news while at the Cincinnati Enquirer.
