Christin Kay

Programming and Content Producer

Christin Kay is passionate about the rich variety of stories, ideas and experiences in the Roaring Fork Valley. She has been a devotee of public radio for her whole life. Born in Denver, she attended Kansas State University as an undergraduate and Regis University for her masters degree in Education, Learning and Teaching. She was in the classroom for 14 years as an English teacher, working to help her students explore deep connections to important ideas and to show them that their voices mattered. A teaching opportunity at Aspen High School brought her to the Roaring Fork Valley for the first time in 2011. It was love at first sight, and she’s still in a bit of awe that she can call this place home.  

 

Christin refuels by skiing, biking, hiking and just breathing in the mountains. Her newest adventure is becoming a mom in November of 2016. She lives in Carbondale with her husband Jeremy, her son Weston and her dog Yalla. She loves to talk books and podcasts, so if you have a recommendation for her, let her know!   

Interesting stories, and how they are crafted, are at the heart of what Christin loves about public radio. She believes that a well-told story can inspire, open and connect. She is honored to be a part of Aspen Public Radio and to have the opportunity to bring stories from the Roaring Fork Valley to life every day.
