At Penn State

Stockton spent much of her time at Penn State in the basement of the James Building, working at The Daily Collegian. She served as a reporter, staff editor and finally as the managing editor. As a reporter, she was on the crime and courts beat twice. In 2007, she won the Hearst Journalism Awards Program national writing championship.


Stockton started working as a newspaper journalist at the Sarasota Herald-Tribune right out of college. She joined PublicSource in 2012 when it was a startup. Not only was it an opportunity to develop skills in investigative and data journalism, but also a chance to explore the nonprofit model of journalism. In May 2015, she was promoted to managing editor of the outfit, which continues to grow and innovate.
