Nadya joined KMUW in May 2015 after a year at a newspaper in western North Dakota, where she did not pick up an accent.

Before entering the wild world of journalism, she studied international relations, worked at a dog daycare and taught English at a school in the Republic of Georgia (not all at the same time). KMUW marks her triumphant return to public media; she previously interned with the diversity department at the NPR mothership in Washington, D.C.

She enjoys traveling, reading, making jewelry that could easily be mistaken for the work of a 4-year-old, and hanging out with her cat, Dragon.
