Jocelyn Dong is the editor of the Palo Alto Weekly/PaloAltoOnline.com and editorial director for the Weekly's parent company, Embarcadero Media. In her more than 20 years with the Weekly, she has covered health, business, land use, neighborhoods and general news. Jocelyn has received recognition for her work from national, state and local press clubs, and the Weekly has been named best-in-state for several years. As editorial director, she guides Embarcadero Media's Peninsula newsrooms.
Raised in Palo Alto, Jocelyn once considered a career as a musician and worked in the nonprofit sector before finding her true calling as a journalist.
The resignation Thursday of a California High-Speed Rail Authority executive, Jeffrey Barker, has led a Palo Alto watchdog group to renew its call for a "giant culture change" at the state rail agency.
