About the Editor

Keely Brazil Covello is a writer, journalist, and filmmaker. She grew up the daughter of a ranch veterinarian in Northern California’s remote Mendocino County.

Keely covered national political news for The Washington Times in D.C., but it was her first hometown reporting job at The Ukiah Daily Journal that gave her a passion for telling the stories of rural, working America.

Keely currently lives with her husband Nick in Orange County, California. Her debut documentary, “You Just Can’t See Them From the Road” is slated for release late 2023.
