Anne Galloway is the founder of VTDigger.org. She has worked as a reporter and editor in Vermont for 17 years. Before she began devoting nearly every waking hour to the management of VTD and coverage of the Vermont Legislature, the governor and state government, Galloway served as the editor of the Sunday Rutland Herald and Times Argus and maintained a quarter-acre vegetable garden in her spare time. She began her career in newspapering as a pre-med-student-turned-literature major at the University of Kentucky, when her first feature story was published in the Kentucky Kernel. She moved to her husband’s home state, Vermont, in 1988 and got a job as a staff writer for the Hardwick Gazette. A year later she began reporting for the Barton Chronicle. For many years, she was a contributing writer for Seven Days and a visual arts reviewer for the Times Argus. Her reporting has appeared in The New York Times, the New York Daily News, Vermont Life and City Pages (Minneapolis). She is a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors. Galloway and her husband have two adult children. They live in East Hardwick.
