Jill Ornitz

Multimedia political reporter. Connecticut Native. Fan of caramel and Kerouac.


I'm a global markets reporter for S&P Global Market Intelligence, where I cover geopolitical events and risks as they affect financial markets. Before joining S&P Global, I covered the intersection of healthcare and financial policy and legislation for The Hill/The Hill Extra, a subscription-based service for industry professionals. I'm based in Washington D.C. As an aspiring policy wonk, I'm at my happiest when I have the chance to dig into legislation and trends that influence how lawmakers will do their jobs.

I covered the 2016 election for the Los Angeles Times in their D.C. bureau. I reported for ABC News in Washington at the start of the 2016 election cycle, and I was stationed in Missouri's statehouse in Jefferson City for two years, where I covered the legislative efforts following the unrest in Ferguson.

I'm a proud alumna of the Missouri School of Journalism and a Connecticut native.
