I'm a 1996 graduate of St. Cloud State University and have been with WJON for over 22 years as a news reporter and anchor. While the news is my business, sports are my love. I am a big fan of the Vikings, Twins, Gopher's basketball, the Wolves, Wild, and St. Cloud State Hockey. My favorite pastimes include snowmobiling, golfing and movies.
