Rebecca Mitchell

Digital Content Producer

Rebecca Mitchell is a Digital Content Producer for the Post Bulletin. She loves capturing local stories through words, photos and videos, and providing resources for the community.

While long loving journalism, Rebecca started her Minnesota journey in November 2019. She specializes in education, feature and health reporting. She says it's great to have the opportunity to enjoy life through a camera lens and by interviewing people.

In 2021, Rebecca received the Dave Pyle New Journalist Award (third place) from the Minnesota Newspaper Association. She received second place for a social issues story in 2022.

Rebecca graduated with a journalism degree from Biola University in 2019 after working with her college newspaper as managing editor, news editor and features editor. She was also the editor-in-chief and web content editor for her college magazine. She interned as a photographer and social media manager with various non-profits to raise awareness on housing needs and helping to end human trafficking.

Outside of the news world, she likes shopping local, visiting state parks, watching movies and helping lead an online church group.
