Nikol Hasler

Former Midwesterner and current mother of three, Nikol comes to PBS SoCal with a background in video production, journalism, comedy writing, and non-profit work. Her non-fiction book won the 2010 Young Adult's Reluctant Reader's Award, and she has spoken at Yale, New York Women In Film, and various medical schools. When she's not working on side projects related to foster children, or home in her kitchen making pickles, she's out enjoying L.A.'s hiking and nightlife scene equally. She is always ready to hear "It's time for Dodger baseball!"
