I am originally from Waukegan, Illinois, a little bit north of Chicago. From there I moved to Aurora, Colorado when I was a kid when my dad became a sheriff’s deputy. After graduating from John F. Kennedy High School in 2013, I felt I needed a change of scenery. I was recruited by Minot State University to play basketball.
I moved to Minot in the fall of 2013 after accepting an athletic scholarship. Three years later my passion became broadcasting, and I devoted all my time and effort into it. I will be graduating from MSU in December with a major in Broadcast Communications and a minor in Communication Arts, and three concentrations in Public Relations, Sociology, and Media Services.
I started at KMOT as a production assistant and then took an internship in the newsroom. I was writing, shooting, and editing news stories every chance I got. After my hours were up, I was fortunate enough to be offered a full-time reporting position and accepted it without hesitation. I am looking forward to the great working environment and amazing community support in the Magic City!
