Keely Larson was born and raised in Montana and hasn’t left. She worked for two years as a community journalist before getting her MA in environmental journalism at the University of Montana. Her work has been published in The New Republic, Ars Technica, Outside Business Journal, KFF Health News, Montana Free Press, and other outlets in Montana.

She now finds herself happy to be back in the mountain west, and attending grad school at UM’s environmental journalism masters program. In her free time Ella enjoys pretty much any outdoor activity but trail running and skiing are at the top of the list.
