Lauren Blair covers the health care and education beats in Craig and Moffat County. A Colorado native, she graduated in 2005 from Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in critical social thought.
Blair relocated to Craig from Denver in July of 2014. She has worn many hats in her work life, including that of wedding and travel photographer, blogger, bakery manager, personal chef and instructor for Outward Bound outdoor education programs. Journalism is the perfect avenue for her to indulge her many curiosities and interests, and she relishes the opportunity to grow each day as a journalist, writer, photographer and human being. When not burning the midnight oil in the newsroom, Blair can be found in her kitchen inventing new recipes, pondering the meaning of life with her boyfriend, Yuri Chicovsky, and their two kitties, jamming out to soul tunes and Beatles records, and exploring the far reaches of this beautiful state with camera in hand.
