Grace joined Colorado Public Radio in 2015 as an energy and environment reporter. She came to CPR after six years with KUNC in Greeley, Colo., where she produced stories on wildfires, land use, water, energy and hydraulic fracturing—and even tracked down a mysterious Colorado war monument on U.S. Forest Service land. Her background extends to print journalism, as she spent three years reporting for the Boulder Weekly.
For her work with KUNC, Grace received the Society of Professional Journalists' 2014 Sigma Delta Chi Award for feature reporting, as well as the Colorado Broadcasters Association's 2014 certificates of merit for best mini-documentary or series and for best news feature, report or series. She was also part of the KUNC news team that received the 2013 Sigma Delta Chi Award for its reporting on the Colorado floods. In 2012, she received the Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize, given to a rising public radio journalist under the age of 35. She has received three national Edward R. Murrow Awards for investigative and feature reporting on education, health and veterans' issues.
