Krysti Shallenberger came to Utility Dive after accidentally landing in Washington D.C. for a fellowship at E&E Publishing. Prior to Utility Dive, she held reporting gigs in Alabama, Montana and Wyoming. Armed with a MA in natural resource journalism and a BA in English Literature, she hopes to propel Utility Dive as the go-to publication for all electrical power happenings. In her offtime, she's usually hiking some mountain or dragging friends to some folk music concert.
