Carolyn Davis covers Montgomery County police and courts as a reporter with the Inquirer. Since joining the newspaper in 2001, she also has been a feature writer and a member of the editorial board. As if those assignments don’t show just how eclectic she is, Davis left journalism for several years and was a humanitarian-relief worker in Cambodia, Rwanda and the Balkans, where she managed a refugee camp during the Kosovo crisis. She, her husband Tim, and their 11-year-old daughter Olivia, live in Montgomery County.
