Celia comes from the newspaper world. She landed at KCUR after a winding, decade-long path through Sweden, Germany, China and Taiwan, but finally found her way. Her coverage of rural public schools in the wake of the Great Recession was a 2016 finalist for the National Awards for Education Reporting. She is co-winner of the KC Press Club's 2016 Public Service Award for a deep-dive that revealed Kansas legislation to be the least transparent in the country. Celia's passions? Languages, libraries and pairing good podcasts with chores, long walks, gardening or anything else that needs to get done.
