I’m not exactly a “St. Cloud native,” but I may as well be. After growing up in Coon Rapids, MN, my family moved to St. Augusta where I attended South Jr. High and Tech high school. In 2016 I graduated from Augsburg College in Minneapolis with a degree in creative writing and film production. I also studied and minored in Spanish. I'm beyond excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the WJON team. Some of the topics I cover include healthcare, medical, fitness, non-profits, community and weekend events, and the city of Rockville. When I'm not working I enjoy reading, writing, music, and spending time with my family and pets.
