On-Camera Reporter, Anchor and Weather Anchor | Speaker | Author | Fashionista

As a first generation American, I grew up in a home of resilient immigrants who planted in me a love for stories. The passion flourished when I discovered storytelling could be a career. Within me is a natural curiosity, excitement for the world around me and a personal mission to seek the truth and represent a diversity in voices and subject matter.

Kristin Vartan: On-Camera Storyteller and Creative

I’m an on-camera reporter, anchor, weather anchor and writer who goes deep into the heart of storytelling while showing up with a warmth and energy that keeps audiences entertained. In all creative aspirations I plan to either foster joy, inform or bring awareness to important issues to humanity. I find creative ways to brings awareness to important and relatable issues, to give a voice to the voiceless, whether on a global, national or local level. I’m able to connect on a personal level with people and establish trust to help them express themselves and share their stories. As a television reporter and social media personality, I utilize my wide audience on-air and online to be an ambassador for my community.
