Most recently, Kelsey worked as a freelance health and science journalist, publishing stories in a wide variety of publications, including National Geographic and Quartz. In 2017, she completed an editorial fellowship at the Alaska Dispatch News, where she traveled to the Arctic to report on new climate research. Kelsey also spent two years as an editor at a B2B publication in Washington, D.C., and earned her Master’s degree from Columbia University’s journalism school, where she focused on health, science, and environmental reporting. Kelsey is a Colorado native and a graduate of the University of Colorado Boulder. She’s relocating from Michigan to Santa Fe to join the Outside team.
