Meet the contributors who make coastal network possible.
Judson Bennett – Senior Contributor
Sara Edwards – Contributor
Sara Edwards earned her BA degree in political science from Duke University, graduating in 2010. She began her career as a legislative assistant, working closely with high-ranked political figures in her home state’s senate office. 5 years later, completely fed up with the blatant corruption and misconduct she witnessed going on behind closed doors, Sara returned to school and completed a second BA in Journalism from Northwestern University. Sara joined Coastal Network as a contributor in 2018 and reports on abuses of power and lawlessness in both the business and government sectors. Sara is an activist to her core, attending rallies and protests across the globe in the pursuit of justice and a better tomorrow for all.
Abigail Knowles – Contributor
Abigail Knowles loves to tell stories. In this pursuit, Abigail joined the Coastal Network contributor team in August of 2019 with hopes of telling stories that expose corruption and facilitate change. Abigail uses a “boots on the ground” approach to her reporting and is certainly not afraid to get her hands dirty to make sure a story gets told factually, and in its entirety. Abigail is currently a Communications doctoral candidate at Columbia Journalism School.
Jacob Finlay – Contributor
Jacob Finlay is a lawyer by day, truth seeker by night. As a Delaware attorney, Mr. Finlay has a front-row seat to the corruption and misdealings of what he likes to call “the old boys’ club.” When he’s not fighting for justice – both in the courtroom and through his written exposés – Jacob enjoys traveling with his wife and two daughters, competing in triathlons (placing in the top 2% at IRONMAN Mont-Tremblant), and any and all winter sports.
