Hometown: Lansford, ND I spent my childhood years in western North Dakota, but I moved to the Grand Forks area when I was a senior in high school. I went to the University of North Dakota (Go, SIOUX!), where I got my Communication degree. It was the summer before my sophomore year of college that I got my first radio job. When I started, I was terrified and ecstatic all at the same time. It was an incredible college job. After graduation, I wanted to do hair, so that's what I did. After I finished hair school in Fargo, I moved to Denver for a couple of years. But, as you probably know, a true North Dakotan can't stay away from her family forever. So, I moved back to North Dakota, still did hair, and picked up a part-time gig at my old radio job. Then, in the fall of 2019, I somehow was fortunate enough to do what I truly love full-time. I'm now doing radio for my career, I've moved back to western North Dakota, and I'm ready for my new life in Bismarck. I'm so glad I made the move! Outside of work, I am kind of a hermit. I like to hang out at home with my pets (Penelope and Raspy) and fiance, Aidan. We enjoy cooking and playing cards and board games. When Aidan and I decide to be social, we like to go to local breweries; dinner and movies, and we also love to travel. My favorite things to do are hair and makeup, listen to music and podcasts, drawing, and go to concerts.
