Trained on the news desks of CNN at the United Nations, The Associated Press Jerusalem Bureau and The International New York Times-Haaretz, Tallie’s diverse reporting and editing has run the gamut from breaking news, politics and national security to science, business, lifestyle and the arts.

In 2009, Tallie’s writing took her to Beijing, China, where she worked for two years as a speechwriter for Israel’s Ambassador to China and freelanced at The China Daily and The Beijinger.
Tallie holds a bachelor’s degree in History from Columbia University and a master’s degree in Development Economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
