Journalist
She covers the Bay Area and Northern California news for the Los Angeles Times from the San Francisco bureau.

She loves tales that focus on people who normally don’t get heard (and places rarely heard from) and has also developed a focus on California’s mental health system. Lee grew up in Canada and then Arizona before moving to the Bay Area.

Lee Romney started with the L.A. Times in 1992 and after many years in the Southland returned to San Francisco in 2003. When not reporting and writing, she paints and makes art out of clay, fabric and other weird things.
