Local Motion: Mothers

Laura Palmisano

What does it mean to be a mother? That answer varies. There are birth mothers, adoptive mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, and godmothers. Let's not also forget mother figures such as an older sister who helped raise you. This week on Local Motion, we'll hear from three women about their experiences with motherhood.

Laura joined KVNF in 2014. She was the news director for two years and now works as a freelance reporter covering Colorado's Western Slope. Laura is an award-winning journalist with work recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists, Colorado Broadcasters Association, and RTDNA.

Murrow Award.
