Emma Vatnsdal

Emma Vatnsdal is a digital producer for InForum and other Forum Communications-owned properties. She earned her degree in multimedia journalism from Minnesota State University Moorhead and joined the Forum Communications team as a features reporter in May 2018.

She grew up in the far north town of Roseau, Minn., enjoys visiting with people of all ages and backgrounds — especially if that visiting involves bars, lefse and some coffee — and she embraces her thick, Minnesotan-Canadian accent with as much love as a lumberjack has for plaid and denim. (Which is a lot, if you don't know!)
