News Reporter

Anh joined the KUNR news team in spring 2014. She has graduate degrees in public health from Boston University and international education from Teachers College, Columbia University. In 2015, Anh received an award from the Associated Press Television Radio Association for producing a spot news story called “Anti-Campus Carry Protestors Rally At UNR.” She also contributed to KUNR's "Behind The Battery Boom," a series on electric car maker, Tesla, which received an Edward R. Murrow award for the station. 

In 2016, Anh was selected to participate in the International Center For Journalists-United Nations Foundation Fellowship in New York City. She is also a member of the Asian American Journalists Association. 

Her reporting for KUNR has included in-depth coverage on health policy in Nevada, community health programs and the opioid addiction epidemic.

Her home life is filled with the mayhem and laughter of three children, who also happen to be public radio fans. When not working on her next radio story, Anh enjoys spending time with her family hiking along scenic trails around Lake Tahoe or taking off on weekend road trips.

Tesla and other big companies get most of the attention in Northern Nevada, but, actually, small business accounts for more than 40 percent of the state’s employment. Reno Chef Mark Estee, who owns Campo and the newly opened Provisions, is one of those job creators.  Reno Public Radio's Anh Gray sat down with Estee to learn more.

Several non-profit agencies have 24 hours to count the number of homeless young people in Washoe County. KUNR's Anh Gray talks with a former resident of a home run by the Nevada Youth Empowerment Project, Miesha Mack, and the organization’s Executive Director Monica Dupea.

Traci Davis became interim superintendent for Washoe County Schools when Pedro Martinez was relieved of his duties last summer. It was a decision by the board of trustees that kicked off a long and costly legal process for the district.

Davis delivered her state of education address Thursday night and joins Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray to talk about goals for 2015 and the obstacles standing ahead.

A district attorney in Northern Nevada says medical marijuana poses a new threat to public safety. Reno Public Radio’s Michelle Bliss reports it’s at the top of the list for Washoe County at an upcoming summit hosted by the state’s attorney general.

Sheriffs, chiefs and district attorneys from across the state will come together at the event in early February to collaborate on ways to make their communities safer.

Washoe County District Attorney Christopher Hicks will share what he’s learned from other states about the public safety issues caused by marijuana.

At-risk youth, like kids who are homeless or have aged out of foster care, face considerable obstacles--they often lack educational training and most don’t have family support to fall back on.

To offer support, a residential home for at-risk youth in downtown Reno called the Eddy House, is setting up a drop-in center that'll open in March.

Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray talked to the nonprofit’s founder, Lynette Eddy, who is also a social worker, to learn more.

The holidays often involve joyful celebrations for many, but starting next week, the Reno Police Department expects to receive an uptick in domestic violence calls. The need for help from local support groups also goes up this season.

Last year Reno Police saw a 40% increase in domestic violence reports on Christmas day and the week leading up to it.   

The recent police shooting death of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, has sparked demonstrations nationwide.

In light of that situation, the Reno Police Department is stepping up their efforts to reach out to businesses and residents to build stronger community relationships, but the Reno-Sparks NAACP says that’s not enough.

Several officers are gathered at a bakery in South Reno, but they’re not investigating a crime.

A Nevada audit recently revealed that the department of education takes too much time to revoke the licenses of teachers who’ve been arrested for a variety of offenses, including sex crimes.  The average wait time is more than a year.

The audit examined 13 cases last year in which a person holding a Nevada education license was arrested for a crime, after which the state took up to 1,200 days to revoke their license.  

A recent study found that Nevada needs more skilled workers to fill high-tech jobs for companies like Tesla moving into the region. The labor shortage requires more career-focused education, but there are challenges to overcome, like teacher shortages.

Nevada veterans currently wait an average of 248 days for a disability claim to be completed, making access to VA health care in this state one of the longest hold-ups in the nation.
