sara boyd3 Sara PelisseroSara Pelissero joined the WCCO web team in August of 2009. You can read her stories on wcco.com and check out her Curiocity column, which focuses on food, entertainment and theater.

Sara grew up in the Twin Cities, in the northern suburbs of St. Paul and attended Mounds View High School before venturing into Wisconsin for college and work. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, studying print journalism and working at the student newspaper, The Spectator. During that time, she interned at the local paper in Eau Claire before heading off to Washington, D.C. for an internship at The Washington Post.

After graduation, she completed an internship at the Green Bay Press-Gazette, before accepting a full-time position. For more than two years, she covered local government — and the Green Bay Packers, of course — for the newspaper before heading back to Minnesota.

Sara was a graduate of the ThreeSixty program in 2001 and now serves on its advisory board. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband Tom and their adorable dog, Doug.
