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. She worked on staff — first as copy editor, then as associate editor — until 2013. Today, as a freelance reporter, she dabbles primarily in arts and entertainment topics, and pumps out a cover story once or twice a year.
