I’ve moved around a lot from Minnesota to Chicago, and I'm now here in Kansas. I love the Midwest, and I can’t imagine being anywhere else right now.

Before coming to WIBW, I worked at a cable news station, Channel 6, in Lawrence. I started a few months after graduating from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Go Salukis! I enjoyed my time in Lawrence, so it only made sense to make the move to Topeka to continue reporting.

When I am not working, I spend most of my time catching up with my family back home. They keep me motivated. I also love a good show to binge on Netflix. One more fun fact about me is that I love the snow. I guess it’s just the Minnesota girl in me.

I’ve always known that I wanted to work in this business. I love finding new stories to tell, and meeting the amazing people behind those stories. If you ever have a story feel free to reach out to me because I am always looking.

I want to learn more about Topeka and the people here. I’m also interested in learning about some fun things to do in the area. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing me around, and I can’t wait to get to know you!
