O’Brien and SKI were already stoked about her fifth Regional Emmy nomination, but she just raised the bar even higher and took home some serious hardware for her work as on-camera talent.

“I put my heart and soul into every piece of content we create, and to have my work recognized and honored by the Heartland Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, it’s truly remarkable,” says O’Brien.

Earlier this spring, Halley received the North American Snowsports Journalism Association Mitch Kaplan Award, which is “presented to the journalist whose work and spirit best captures the enthusiasm and dedication of the late Mitch Kaplan, NASJA’s former secretary-treasurer.”
