Kellan Howell

Politics Reporter

Kellan has been reporting in Washington, D.C. for five years. Growing up as a military brat, Kellan got to live and travel all over the world, which gave her a knack for getting to know new people and finding interesting stories from an early age. She studied magazine journalism at James Madison University but found, in the world of Facebook and YouTube, that video is where it's at. When she's not chasing lawmakers around the halls of Capitol Hill, Kellan loves to spend time working on her bartending skills, going to concerts and binge watching the latest show on Netflix. You can follow her on Twitter @KellanHowell.
