Kelsie comes to 10/11 News after working as an evening anchor for Dakota News Now, a fellow Gray Television station, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She has previously worked as a reporter and weekend anchor in Rockford, Illinois.
Her interest in broadcast journalism began in high school. As a kid, she was very comfortable on camera, making up skits with friends to perform on her family's VHS video camera. Her uncle, Jeff Passolt, had a long career in broadcast journalism in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and in her teen years, she looked to him as inspiration for a future career of her own.
Kelsie loves storytelling in a way that helps viewers understand what a story is and why it matters.
Outside of work, Kelsie likes to play golf. She played NCAA Division 1 college golf at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois from 2008 to 2012.
