Gwen joined the KIRO news team in April 2022.
Before moving to Seattle, she spent most of her life in the Midwest. Gwen is ‘not in Kansas anymore’, but that is where this fourth-generation Kansan started her journalism career. She also worked at news stations in Iowa and Nebraska before moving with her husband to London.
While in the UK, Gwen earned a master’s degree from the University of London. She also worked for various news and radio outlets but spent most of her time at CBS News. She covered the Royals, Brexit, and UK elections.
After moving back to the US, Gwen spent a year working for a digital news start-up. During that time, she was able to travel to Ukraine and Poland to report on Russia’s invasion and the growing refugee crisis.
Outside of the newsroom, she is mom to ‘Poncho’, her miniature dachshund puppy, and ‘Aunt Gwen’ to four sweet nephews.
