Before moving to the heart of America, Kaci worked as a reporter in Rochester, New York. Her most memorable work was tracking down a slumlord who owned dozens of properties in the city. Some of his properties had infestations, broken heat, unserviceable mailboxes, and mounds of trash. After Kaci found and exposed the property owner, he sold to a legitimate management company, helping secure affordable and safe housing for dozens of families. Kaci’s work also sparked legislation to protect tenants and the formation of a tenant’s rights union.
