About Our Staff

Andrea Heerdt

Andrea Heerdt Editor-in-Chief

Hello! My name is Andrea Heerdt, and I’m currently the Editor-in-Chief. I’ve been working for Insight for about a year now. It’s pretty cool. I started out as a volunteer writer and photographer then became the Art Director which turned into my current position as EIC. Outside of Insight I love going to Lake Tahoe, hanging out with friends and family, and taking pictures.

Katherine Larsen

Katherine Larsen Copy Editor

Hi friends! As a super senior that switched from Neuroscience to Elementary Education (I swear it makes sense if you want me to explain), this is my final year at UNR and my third year with Insight as a copy editor. You’ll find me on a mountain or hidden away in a coffee shop when I’m not dashing between the Raggio and the Joe! We’ve got amazing things coming and I’m stoked to be a part of the Insight staff!

Hi there! My name is Taylor Harker and I am a junior at the University of Nevada, Reno. This school has led me to some amazing friends and professors that inspire me to be a better person everyday. I study journalism with an emphasis in strategic communications, so I hope to be an awesome social media director. I love being a part of the Insight magazine and working with people that bring such creativity and life to this campus.

Kellie Sasso Photography Editor

Born 20 years ago & raised in the Arizona sunshine, I’m a sassy photographer / blogger of sorts who is currently finding herself in Reno, NV. I have a passport that I’ve never used and I have been to more oldies rock concerts than that of any other kind. Someday after earning my journalism degree, my camera will take me and my 80’s spotify playlist adventuring across the globe. Oh, and P.S. Just call me Sasso.. Coverdale does. ;)
