I began my career in radio just after high school, after working in retail and waiting tables at various restaurants. Originally from the Twin Cities, my path took me to out-state Minnesota, then to Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Florida, back to Indiana, then on to Illinois, California, & finally, to the Tri-Cities. Then, I was offered a job too appealing to turn down, & I went home to Minnesota. After several months, the Covid pandemic struck and I was missing the Tri-Cities. During this time, I was offered a job with Townsquare Media, back in the Tri. What are the odds? I'm back HOME in Richland with my husband Jeff, and our two cats, Koko Kitty & Pretty Peaches. I enjoy bicycling through the area and walking my cats in their stroller. And, there's nothing better than a walk or ride along the Columbia River. Living the radio lifestyle has afforded me many opportunities to emcee lots of community events, including the Mid-Columbia Duck Race & Turkey Trot. I've been blessed to be involved with numerous civic organizations and non-profits. My radio highlights are meeting Muhammad Ali, skydiving twice, and flying with the United States Air Force Thunderbirds, earning my 9-G pin. I'm an avid Green Bay Packers fan, and of course, I LOVE cheese!
