Nancy Cambria was the children and families reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for more than a decade. Her stories focused on the region's most vulnerable children and families with an increasing emphasis on traumapoverty and health inequity. In the aftermath of protests and violence that erupted in Ferguson, Cambria spent seven months reporting on children and families living the area. The report, “The Crisis Within: How toxic stress and trauma endanger our children,” focused on evolving research indicating inequity, poverty and violence can deeply impair child brain and physical development and lead to poor health outcomes in adulthood. The project offered numerous solutions to solve this public health issue and was later recognized by The New York Times as one of the nation’s top pieces of solutions journalism in 2016. Cambria has won numerous state and national awards for her reporting, including a 2017 James Aronson Award for Social Justice Reporting, a 2017 Dart Award finalist, and a runner-up for the 2012 Casey Medal for Meritorious Reporting on children and family issues. Her 2011 and 2012 reporting on more than 50 infant deaths in unregulated Missouri child cares changed both state and federal laws regarding child care safety and standards and prompted revisions to the federal child care subsidy program – a $1 billion program.


Nancy serves on communications boards with the Missouri Children’s Trust Fund and the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank and was recently honored by the diaper bank as a “Champion of Change” for her work to promote the diaper bank in the St. Louis region.


Nancy is a Phil Beta Kappa graduate of Skidmore College and holds an MA in English and Creative Writing from Ohio University. Her husband Jeremy Kohler is an investigative reporter with the Post-Dispatch. They are proud North St. Louis County residents and have two teenage sons who attend MICDS.
