Climate change affects skier and guide on a very personal level

Me at home, with one of my first skis, and an early photo of skiing with my mom in Vermont.

It was an honor to talk with Kingkini for her NPR NextGenRadio climate project.


We are finding, coaching and training public media’s next generation. This #NPRNextGenRadio project is created with the University of Nevada, Reno, where five talented reporters are participating in a week-long state-of-the-art training program.

In this project we are highlighting the experiences of people whose lives are being affected by climate change.
