Amy Gastelum

Reporter, Nurse, Writer

As a writer and radio producer, I pursue stories that explore the binding tissue of human experience. My background as a Registered Nurse informs my work with a hearty blend of empathy and investigative drive. With each project, I try to confront the failures of mainstream media and ignorance towards large portions of our national community. And whether I’m interviewing a courageous teenage mother, a drawbridge operator, or a bestselling author – I’m captivated by the construct of personal truth. Our individual histories and mythologies are the fibers of our unique and collective human identity.  While my work may not always challenge systemic viewpoints, I hope to demonstrate the capacity of free expression and sincere attention.
