After earning her bachelor’s degree in mass communication from Bemidji State University in 1995, she began her newspaper career as a staff reporter for the Review Messenger in Menahga/Sebeka. She joined the Enterprise in 2001. A two-year stint overseas had her living in Zurich, Switzerland and working at an international school. Upon returning to the U.S. in 2004, she rejoined the Enterprise as a graphic artist, creating ads, paginating the newspaper and designing special sections. In 2014, she moved back into the newsroom, writing human interest stories and covering local government. She was named editor in October 2017.

Geisen has two daughters who attend the Park Rapids School District.

In addition to writing and photography, she enjoys camping, biking, film, traveling and reading.
