Lisa Nico is a proud Oregonian! She grew up in a small Portland suburb and graduated from Portland State University with a degree in Communication and a certificate in Writing.

Lisa kicked off her professional writing career doing freelance work for the online magazine, What’s Happening PDX. In her autobiographical monthly column, “City Life,” Lisa took readers to exciting events around Portland that revolved around fashion, food, and fun. She continued her training while interning at KPTV in Portland, before moving to Eugene to work for KVAL as a multi-media journalist and producer in 2012.

When she’s not making the news, you can probably find Lisa in the kitchen! Her passions include food and drink, family and friends, movies and music, tennis, and spending time with her fluffy felines, Iggy and Bowie.
