About Regina Rickert

I am a writer and photographer covering UK for Nation of Blue. I started out as a media contact for the Berea College News Service, sending out press releases to hometown newspapers. This led to covering Berea men's basketball and writing game summaries for a local Richmond newspaper. I eventually combined my love of photography with my passion for sports. I began shooting UK athletics in 2010.
