Arikka Von Headshot

Arikka is from the Marshall Islands, where she spent most of her childhood chasing hermit crabs and waves. When she moved to Utah she became a news junky and reporter. After twelve years in the TV news business, she hung up her microphone and swore off mascara. Arikka now shares Westminster’s stories with media and the community. She has a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Utah and a master’s degree in strategic communication from Westminster. She hopes heaven is all the pretty things she puts on Pinterest.

Arikka can assist you with:

  • Internal newsletters
  • Press releases
  • Media outreach
  • Community calendars
  • Emergency communications
  • Integrated communications
