Jamie Smith Hopkins

Deputy Editor and Senior Reporter, Environment  The Center for Public Integrity

Before joining the Center's environment and labor team, Jamie Smith Hopkins worked for 15 years for the Baltimore Sun, where she spent most of her time as a business reporter. Her coverage of the housing market, before and after the 2008 economic crash, drew awards from the National Association of Real Estate Editors and the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. SABEW also honored a 2011 data-driven investigation into a pervasive property-tax break that left neighbors with identical homes paying dramatically different tax bills. Hopkins was the valedictorian of her class at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
