Kelsey Thompson joined KXAN as a digital reporter in April 2021 after spending two years as a newspaper reporter covering Round Rock, Pflugerville and Hutto. An Upstate New York native, she graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in magazine journalism in May 2019 and relocated to Austin, trading three feet of snow for triple-digit summer temperatures.

In her spare time, Kelsey enjoys running around Lady Bird Lake, perfecting the art of a Bon Appetit dessert recipe and spending an obscene number of hours wandering BookPeople. You can connect with her on story tips — or follow the misadventures of her rescue cat, Leo — on Twitter or via email at
