Background: I grew up in Detroit Lakes Minnesota – 100% Lake Girl. I went to Concordia College Moorhead and started in radio as a sales/promotions intern in College. My internship made me realize my true love for radio! I was promoted to the Promotions Director in Fargo following graduation. In addition to being Promotions Director, I decided to temporary fill in as a morning show host in Fargo for a summer! I then ventured to Grand Forks radio sales in 2014. My passion for radio continues to this day with my career at Leighton Broadcasting!

Why you love your work: “Love what you do and you will never work a day in your life” This statement is so true about my work. I love using my abilities to help businesses successfully market their services/products through multimedia platforms. I thrive coming up with organic ideas and promotions to help businesses brand themselves.
Random facts about yourself: I have a rescue fur baby named Koda. I am also currently building my future home in Grand Forks with my fire fighting significant other. I absolutely love being at the lake, and being an outdoors woman. Bow hunting and fishing are a favorite part of my past time, unless I’m watching the current season of the Bachelor! I am proud to be a very family oriented person. Bonus fact, I am gluten free since 2015 because of Celiac Disease, and have learned to make delicious gluten free goodies!
