Gianna Cruet received her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism in May 2013 from the University of Nevada, Reno. She began her position with Lee Central Coast Newspapers as the government reporter for the city of Lompoc in August 2013. Gianna applied for the position because she liked the Central Coast, but soon found she loved city government reporting and breaking news coverage in a midsized town. She hopes to continue honing her journalistic skills as a watchdog and community reporter.
