Chelsea Yarnell 

I've worked as a journalist on the Oregon Coast for over 10 years. 

Looking back on a decade of work, my favorite stories are usually not determined by number of reads or shares on social media, but by the passion of those I interview. I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of finding a unique angle in just about anything. Everyone has a story to tell, and I immensely appreciate those who have agreed and entrusted me to share theirs. 


Not every story is breaking news, but our community’s collective stories create empathy and keep us resilient. The “foreshore” is the space between water and cultivated land. It’s not in the breaking waves, but what’s left after the tide recedes: a protection to the shore, even when the whitecaps become fierce. 


As a project, I hope Foreshore Features will be a landing place for human interest pieces about the people and places of Tillamook County.
