A part-time native of the Methow Valley, Tyson Kellie has come on board at the News as an advertising associate. The many years he spent traveling between here and there (and back again) should serve him well as he travels up and down the valley, and to points beyond, assisting local businesses and organizations who need to get their message out.
Kellie grew up in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, where he graduated from high school. His parents have owned a cabin in the Methow Valley for many years, and Kellie has been a frequent visitor since childhood. He spent one summer working as a banquet server at Sun Mountain Lodge. Kellie and his fiancé, Hailey Barnes, live in Pine Forest.
