Kelsey Kusterer Ziser is a senior editor at Light Reading and co-host of the Light Reading podcast. She also hosts the "What's the story?" podcast.
Kelsey studied journalism and mass communication with a second major of Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but her interest in the telecom world started with a public relations position at Connect2 Communications. Her drive for communicating the impact of new technology translated into a communications position at the FREEDM Systems Center, a smart grid research lab at N.C. State University. While at FREEDM, Kelsey orchestrated the center's webinar program which crossed multiple college campuses and covered research projects like cybersecurity in the smart grid and the center's smart solid-state transformer. She has also held roles in marketing and grant administration.
