News Reporter

Ashley Koffler is a Killdeer, North Dakota native and Dickinson State University graduate, with a Bachelor’s Degree in writing, and minors in journalism and psychology. Formerly working in Community Affairs for Roosevelt Custer Regional Council for Development, Koffler's green thumb sees her often tending to her flower gardens and many house plants.

Koffler's husband and their three kids, dogs and cats keep her deeply rooted in Western North Dakota, as they love hiking the Badlands and participating in other outdoor activities. Like most North Dakotans, Summer is her favorite season though she loves the spooky season, scary movies, pumpkins and all things Halloween.

Her reporting focuses on Stark County and other rural municipality governments, community features, business and agriculture — among others.
