Winnie Yip Fong is a Los Altos resident, a Montclaire mom, a journalism graduate, and a local realtor. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Winnie received her master's degree in journalism from the University of Maryland. To her, journalism is about searching for truth and balance; she enjoyed being able to see news making first hand. After working in the field of journalism for a few years, she began doing public relations for the non-profit sector, trying to make a difference in a different capacity.

As a realtor, she enjoys helping people with what is often their largest investment of their lifetime, and working with people from all walks of life.
Though not a full time journalist anymore, Winnie remains passionate about writing and news. Her other pastimes include reading, traveling, cooking and spending time with friends and family.
