I was born and raised in sunny Southern California. Moving to Minot is an exciting change for me. I have never lived in a place that has “real” weather, and I am looking forward to enjoying the four seasons as I start here with KMOT!

I graduated from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles in 2016, with a Bachelor of Science degree. I was a four year student athlete in college, where I played NCAA Division I Softball. In my senior season, I was fortunate enough to be honored as a First Team All-Conference player in the West Coast Conference, and even received Second Team All-Regional honors in the West Region that season. My life has always been filled with sports. From a young age I played soccer, basketball and softball. And I am an avid sports fan who enjoys watching and attending most any sporting event, although Major League Baseball is my favorite among the major professional sports.

Following my graduation from college, I worked for Loyola Marymount University as an Assistant Director of Media Relations, and for Spectrum SportsNet on the television production crew. These experiences have been invaluable for me, and I am looking forward to expanding on such experiences at KMOT.

My immediate family still lives in Southern California, although my younger sister is currently away at college in the state of Washington. But my great big Akita puppy, Dakota, keeps my mom and dad plenty busy while we’re both away. I have a large extended family, with a lot of relatives in Illinois and Missouri, so the Midwest is no stranger to me. I’ve visited many times over the years, and love the spirit and the people of the Midwest.

I am thankful for my opportunity to work in the Midwest and to be part of the KMOT family!
