  • Laura King-Homan (24)
    Laura King-Homan is a contributor to the Storm & Outage Center and a communications specialist at Omaha Public Power District. She has nearly 20 years of print journalism and design experience, which lets her tell the stories of OPPD and its employees both graphically and through her writing. Laura and her husband have a teenage daughter and toddler-age son. When she’s not parenting two ends of the childhood spectrum, she’s juggling her DVR space and obsessively consuming TV and pop culture. She hopes that all of her pop culture knowledge will be useful someday, but she’s content just acing trivia quizzes for now.
