Born and raised in St. Paul by my amazing Mom, Judy. I graduated from St. Paul Johnson High School. After high school, I had many different jobs (pharmacy tech, truck un-loader at UPS, daycare worker, asst. manager at a department store) while I tried to figure out what I wanted to do. I've been a radio junkie from a young age and decided that's where I needed to be. I attended Brown College in Mendota Heights and knew right away that I had finally found my career. I moved to Willmar in 2001, and have done radio in the Willmar area ever since.
