Kristin Bausch is an audience engagement producer for The Marshall Project, where she is responsible for reaching new audiences as well as engaging the newsroom’s followers on social media such as Instagram, TikTok and Reddit. Bausch comes to The Marshall Project from USA Today, where she was an audience editor. There, she sharpened her social graphic design skills, and she specializes in engaging people with informative Instagram carousel posts, TikToks, YouTube posts, email and more. She previously launched an SMS service for WUFT News to connect with economically underrepresented and rural communities in North Central Florida. As an Asian-American, her culture is an important aspect of her life; she penned a piece for Andscape (formerly The Undefeated) to discuss the difficulties of growing up in a biracial family and how that sentiment returned amid growing anti-Asian hate in the COVID-19 pandemic. A Florida native and graduate of the University of Florida, Bausch currently resides in Indiana.
