As the daughter of two print journalists, going into the family business has always been my goal. But I feel especially fortunate to work at a job I love in my home town of Sioux Falls.

After graduating from Lincoln High School, I headed to Boston University to study broadcast journalism and political science. My first job out of school brought me home to Sioux Falls, where I worked as a reporter at another station before coming to KELOLAND TV in 1996.

Over the past 15 years at KELO, I've done nearly every job in the newsroom from reporting to producing. After working for seven years as executive producer, I became news director in 2008. Along the way, I've been lucky enough to work on stories, newscasts and specials that have won national Edward R. Murrow awards, regional Emmys and awards from the Associated Press.

I've also taught writing classes to students at University Center, as a part-time adjunct professor for South Dakota State University.

When I'm not at work, I love spending time with my husband Mark and our two children. The kids are the fourth generation in my family to attend Mark Twain Elementary School. It's so special to watch them learn in the same classrooms that I, my mother and grandmother did.

I am passionate about the importance of community involvement and I'm honored to serve as a board member for Volunteers of Americas Dakotas, Washington Pavilion Visual Arts Center and Kilian Community College.

If you have a story idea or want to share your thoughts on our newscasts, I'd love to hear from you.

I swear I didn't plan this. Join us on KELOLAND This Morning in just one hour! #kelonews #coffeekickingin
