I'm Kristy Hutchings, a freelance investigative reporter based in Los Angeles. 

I use my training in investigative reporting techniques to uncover and shed light on stories that disproportionately impact low-income & marginalized communities. My most recent work is focused on examining barriers to mental health care in California & how those impact the overall health of individuals and their communities.
