Hey Everyone! I'm a native Iowan (Go Cyclones) and most recently worked at radio stations in southern Minnesota. I've been in the business since 2006 and absolutely love what I do. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, collecting old vinyl, visiting mom and pop restaurants, watching my favorite teams lose and spending time with family. Catch me on the morning show, along with Christine, Monday through Friday from 6:00 am -10:00 am!
