Originally from the Chicago area, Kirsten Akens moved to Colorado Springs to attend Colorado College in 1992, and never left. After 10 years working in the nonprofit sector, she made a career change and landed at the Independent in 2006. As copy editor, Kirsten reads every bit of editorial text — often two or three times — before it reaches the readers each week. As a freelance reporter, she dabbles primarily in arts and entertainment topics, and pumps out a cover story once or twice a year.
