About Kirsten Grind

kirstengrind_headshot.jpg

Kirsten Grind is a reporter for The Wall Street Journal based in New York. At the WSJ, she covers the mutual fund industry and asset managers, including BlackRock, Fidelity and Pimco. Previously she was the banking reporter at the Puget Sound Business Journal in Seattle, where she wrote a series of investigative stories about the collapse of Washington Mutual. Those stories, along with an in-depth series on the foreclosure crisis, garnered a Pulitzer Finalist citation in 2010, along with numerous other national awards. The stories also led to a contract with Simon & Schuster and, for the last two years, Kirsten has been at work writing the book about this great catastrophe, the only one exploring WaMu’s momentous downfall.

Earlier in her career, Kirsten was a writer at The Seattle Times covering biotechnology, the Port of Seattle and Snohomish County. Previously she was a business reporter and later, editor, at the largest daily newspaper in Northern Colorado. She is originally from San Diego, where most of her family still lives. She went to journalism school at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) and has worked in the field since then. She is married to Steve Grind, who works in the outdoor gear industry.
