Kelsey ZiserSenior Editor at Light Reading
Kelsey Kusterer Ziser is a senior editor covering SD-WAN deployments at Light Reading. In addition, as curator at the 5G Exchange, Kelsey acts as gatekeeper for all content submitted to Light Reading's authoritative resource of vetted, 5G-related information provided by the industry. She also plays an important role in developing Light Reading's events program.
Kelsey studied journalism and mass communication with a second major of Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but her interest in the telecom world started with a PR position at Connect2 Communications. Her drive for communicating the impact of new technology translated into a communications position at the FREEDM Systems Center, a smart grid research lab at NC State University. While at FREEDM, Kelsey orchestrated the center's webinar program, which crossed multiple college campuses and covered research projects like cybersecurity in the smart grid and the center's smart solid-state transformer.
