About 

    A member of CNN Digital's global travel team, CNN Digital Writer/Producer Katia Hetter writes about the ins and outs of travel. She loves covering this year's National Park Service Centennial nature and why we love Disney, camping and all-inclusive resorts (or not).

    Prior to joining CNN in 2011, Hetter covered the post-9/11 redevelopment of the World Trade Center site for Newsday, the marriage-defining moments of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's first acts in office for the San Francisco Chronicle and major U.S. Supreme Court decisions for U.S. News & World Report.

    She was a member of Newsday's 2004 Pulitzer Prize finalist team for coverage of the 2003 New York City blackout.

    Hetter has also trained and edited a newsroom of teen writers at the non-profit Youth Communication in New York City. She has freelanced for the New York Times, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, RachaelRay.com, Babycenter.com, the Advocate and Entertainment Weekly.
