Connect With Me


I’m from Nevis, MN and graduated high school in 2013 with a class of about 40 people. While in high school I was a three-sport athlete and participated in many extra-curricular activities.

After high school I went to college at Minnesota State University, Moorhead and graduated in 2016 with a major in Broadcast Journalism and a double minor in Sports Broadcasting and Photojournalism.
While going to school I had the chance to intern for KVRR sports in Fargo, ND for two years.

I did Campus News in college, MSUM’s own TV program which aired weekly. This helped me develop a passion for news and to get stories out to the public.

In my spare time I like to stay active and be outdoors. Playing sports and walking my puppy are my favorite things to do.

If you need an extra member to play on your team, I would love to join!
If you have any stories you’d like to share with me I am open to ideas. You can email me at
