Nadya joined KMUW in May 2015 after a year at a newspaper in western North Dakota, where she did not pick up an accent.

Before entering the wild world of journalism, she studied international relations, worked at a dog daycare and taught English at a school in the Republic of Georgia (not all at the same time). KMUW marks her triumphant return to public media; she previously interned with the diversity department at the NPR mothership in Washington, D.C.

She enjoys traveling, reading, making jewelry that could easily be mistaken for the work of a 4-year-old, and hanging out with her cat, Dragon.

The Wichita Art Museum has appointed a new curator to oversee its more than 8,000-piece collection.

Wichita native Tera Hedrick has worked with the museum since 2016, and has served as interim curator since last May.

"Tera exceeded every expectation, so much so that the museum ended its national search and selected her as the WAM curator for the museum’s next chapter,” WAM director Patricia McDonnell said in a statement Friday. “Tera is an extraordinary talent, and we are fortunate to keep her in her hometown of Wichita."
