Sara Israelsen-Hartley is a special projects reporter who writes about public health issues and their impact on families. During 15 years with the Deseret News, she's won awards for her coverage of teens and anxiety, gender-based wage inequalities, kids and technology, divorce reform, abortion legislation and pornography.


In 2019, she was honored to be named a National Fellow with the Center for Health Journalism at USC Annenberg.


The only things she loves more than journalism are God, her amazing scientist husband, Jon, their three rambunctious boys and deep-friend mozzarella sticks.
