Amanda Kersey has been a reporter and photographer for Somerville Patch and other nearby town sites since January, 2011. She began producing news from the communities in October of that year. She graduated from New York University last January with a B.A. in Spanish literature and journalism. Kersey covered campus and city news as a staff writer for NYU’s student-run daily newspaper, The Washington Square News. She also interned at The L Magazine, a small magazine in Brooklyn.
Her last internship before entering the workforce was at Gotham Gazette, a politics and public policy Web site based in Manhattan. At the Gazette, Kersey covered a Brooklyn state Assembly election and reported on New York’s initiatives to make locally grown food available to all New Yorkers.
Besides writing for Patch, Kersey spends her time cooking, shopping at the Somerville Winter Farmers’ Market and reading at the Cambridge Public Library.
