Gretel Daugherty

Photo Editor

Job description

To do her best to record whatever is happening at the moment with whichever camera she is carrying at the time — and sometimes write a story about it, too.


Associate’s degree from Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kan., and a bachelor’s degree from Mesa State College in mass communication with an emphasis in print and broadcast. She also studied journalism and photojournalism for several years at the University of Kansas.


Gretel hails from eastern Kansas where she spent the first 31 years of her life, more or less. Much of her adulthood was occupied with raising six children while running her own freelance photojournalism business. She worked on staff at the Killeen Daily Herald in Killeen, Texas, and has been either a freelancer or staff member at The Daily Sentinel since 1988. While a freelancer, she also covered northwestern Colorado for The Denver Post for several years, and worked on assignment for numerous state and national publications.


Gretel’s family keeps her hopping; she’s not only the mother of two young ladies and four young men, but also “Nana” to many grandchildren. Whitewater rafting, restoring her old farmhouse, painting, skiing, swimming and bicycling are among her avocations she enjoys in her “spare” time.
