Lori Teresa Yearwood: Journalist of Life on the Edge

From a New York Times obit by Richard Sandomir headlined “Lori Teresa Yearwood. Journalist of Life on the Edge, Dies at 57”:

Lori Teresa Yearwood, a journalist who after an excruciating spiral into two years of homelessness returned to reporting and wrote both about her ordeal and about people dealing with similar economic hardships, died at her home in Salt Lake City.

Ms. Yearwood’s articles for The Washington Post, The New York Times, Slate, Defector, Mother Jones and other outlets established her as a prominent and empathetic voice of the unhoused, as she called homeless people. She referred to herself as a “trauma-informed journalist.”
