I have been in the radio since 2003 when I found myself on KOWZ in Owatonna as an intern while attending Brown College in Minneapolis. After graduating in 2004 I spent 3 years as the News Director and Operations Supervisor in Sparta, WI at WCOW. Then, in May of 2007 I moved to Mankato to be closer to family (they all escaped the cornfields of Iowa shortly after I graduated High School) I was hired as an Account Manager for Three Eagles Communications. After about a year of that I took the Morning Show co-host job on Country 103.5. I left radio in November of 2009 only to find that once it's in your blood you're done for. Now, here I am on your radio from 5:30 to 10:00 with George and I'm so happy to be here!
When I'm not doing the air guitar to Def Leppard (really) I am very active. I love running and am training for the Mankato 1/2 Marathon. I also enjoy biking with my wonderful husband and doing house projects...with the exception of painting :) I prefer summer but started snow shoeing last year and that helps make the white stuff a little more bearable.

There's an 80 year old woman living inside me, I have a rain gauge and I get up and look out the window when cars go by.
I'm a big nerd and love to read and look up words I don't know on my google machine (aka computer)
I love singing karaoke and can't carry a tune in a bucket
I met my husband during a radio promotion
I can't cook, but I am trying. I recently mastered a chicken in the crock pot!
I also can't swim, but I am planning on takin swim lessons this winter so I can do a triathlon this spring (and so I don't drown in the bathtub)
I have a Min-Pin named Dexter that thinks she's a human
