Heidi Bethel

Position: Getaway Navigator

As a young girl, Heidi Bethel would compose newsletters and stories about the goings on in Elko, the small northeastern Nevada town she grew up in. After graduating high school, she moved to the big city to pursue her degree in journalism from the University of Nevada, Reno.

Today, she enjoys exploring the Sierra and many adventures with her husband, their two young sons, and sweet puppy. A foodie at heart, Bethel loves all the delicious eats in the area, but perhaps her most favorite aspect are the magnificent sunsets and sights to see in Reno/Tahoe and beyond. As Getaway’s senior copy editor, she encourages visitors to get out there and truly experience all this region has to offer.

A few quotes to live by:

Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

Blessed are the curious, as they shall have adventures.
