Kelly Moffitt's Profile

Twitter: @kmariemoffitt

I'm Kelly, and I was the assistant director of community outreach from Dec. 2011 to Aug. 2013, helping Joy Mayer, the director of community outreach, with getting Columbia involved in the news at the Columbia Missourian. I also assisted with the Community Outreach Team, as their teaching assistant. I graduated from MU in May 2012 with my BA and BJ and am finishing up my MA in journalism as of Dec. 2013.

I worked on the community outreach team in the fall of 2011 and, before that, I was a beat reporter for Vox Magazine. Originally from St. Louis, I have enjoyed getting to know Columbia as my new home base. I'm a proud Missourian and revel in all the glorious trivia surrounding our fine state. Do you have any Missouri trivia I need to know? Let me know about it by sending an email to

If you have questions about the From Readers section, I encourage you to email Joy Mayer, the director of community outreach, at
