Business and Education Reporter Liz Kellar is a California native who — long after she moved to Nevada County — discovered she could trace her Gold Country heritage back to the 19th century.
Born in Southern California, Liz grew up overseas as a Foreign Service “brat,” returning stateside to attend UC Santa Cruz. She started her newspaper career at the now-defunct Suttertown News in Sacramento and worked at Northern California newspapers including the Auburn Journal and the Santa Cruz Sentinel, before a three-year stint as features editor at the Kerrville (Texas) Daily Times.
Liz was happy to return home to the West Coast in 2004 and worked at the Sacramento Bee and the Lincoln News-Messenger before accepting the position of crime beat reporter for The Union in 2008. She moved to Juneau, Alaska, at the end of 2016 but quickly decided she could not handle the dreary weather, returning to The Union in September.
She currently lives in Grass Valley with her husband and son.
