Biography

Lisa Girion joined the Los Angeles bureau of Reuters as a top news editor in January after 16 years at the Los Angeles Times, most recently as an investigative reporter assigned to the Metro desk, where she produced major multimedia stories on the intersection of government, commerce, health and welfare. Before joining the Times, she served as city editor of the Los Angeles Daily News and reported for that paper as well as the Dallas Times Herald, the Dallas Morning News and the Wilmington (Del.) News Journal. She has won many awards for her work, including exposes on alleged human rights abuses in Myanmar (Burma) and on some health insurers’ practice of rescinding coverage for sick  policyholders, which informed the health care reform debate and was cited in the Affordable Care Act implementing regulations. She earned a bachelor's degree at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
