Carey Higgins-Dobney, aka "Director Carey"


Carey is currently a local television newscast director in Portland, Oregon and a part time faculty member teaching broadcast journalism at Clackamas Community College.

She is also a wife, mom, runner, gardener, and sleep lover who doesn’t get nearly enough.

In her spare time, she’s a PhD candidate in Urban Studies at Portland State University, researching the effects of labor conditions on local tv newsroom workers and the stories they produce. She’s hoping to complete her dissertation before all of her hair turns grey and speaking about herself in the third person becomes a habit.
