Kelsey Brugger `13 is the Santa Barbara County beat reporter for the award-winning weekly The Santa Barbara Independent, covering local issues from Montecito to Santa Maria. She graduated with a double major in history of public policy and communications studies from UC Santa Barbara, where she also participated in the Writing Program and the Education Abroad Program at UC Paris in France.

I hope to provide an honest account of the job -- the good, the bad and the ugly."
