I take pride in calling Kansas my home. My hobbies include painting (while not very good), watching Star Trek or Star Wars, and playing with my two beautiful children.

I’ve called Kansas my home almost all my life. I started in broadcasting at the age of 17, while still in High School at KOAM-TV in Pittsburg. I worked my way up the ranks, starting as a part-time news assistant, running cameras, editing video and even running to get coffee from time-to-time. Later, at the age of 20, I became the youngest news producer in KOAM-TV history, working on the morning show.

I then moved on to FOX Kansas in Wichita, serving in several different positions, including Promotions Coordinator.

In August of 2007, I took my talents to KSOK Radio in Arkansas City, KS, where I was news Director and co-host of the country music morning show.

Keeping in the news business, I moved on to KAKE-TV in Wichita to serve as News Assignment Editor, and then in Topeka at WIBW-AM where I was an anchor, reporter, news director and social media coordinator.
