Celia Llopis-Jepsen

Reporter, Kansas News Service

I'm inspired to write about how we can all live healthier, happier lives. That means stories about preventive care and societal changes that can beat back disease and chronic conditions so we make fewer trips to the doctor in the first place. And when people do have to go to the doctor, I want to give them tools to find and afford the right care. I’m also interested in what it’s like for employers trying to build high-quality health plans that don't break the bank.

Before joining the Kansas News Service, I covered education and the Statehouse for the Topeka Capital-Journal.

I have a master's in journalism from Columbia University and a master’s in bilingualism studies from Stockholm University in Sweden. Before coming to Kansas, I spent a decade living and working in Sweden, Germany and Taiwan, including several cherished years working for the Taipei Times.
