Kameel Stanley is a reporter with St. Louis Public Radio. She is also one of the producers of our We Live Here podcast, covering race, class, power, and poverty in the St. Louis Region. Before moving to St. Louis in summer 2015, Kameel worked for several years as a public safety and city hall beat reporter for the Tampa Bay Times in Florida. In between investigating racial disparities in policing and reporting on racial tensions in city government, she also wrote for Deal Divas, the newspaper's fashion blog. Kameel has roots in the midwest and, like any good Michigander, can point to her hometown using her hand. She graduated from Central Michigan University in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in journalism. She is a pet-mom to a kooky Boston Terrier and loves yoga, shopping and books.
