KELOLAND has always been my home. That’s why it’s such a thrill to be part of the news team I grew up watching.
I grew up in Hartford, South Dakota, where I graduated from West Central High School. From there, I moved to Marshall, Minnesota, to attend Southwest Minnesota State University. While in Marshall, I started my radio career on KKCK playing music and doing play-by-play announcing for several sports. My play-by-play announcing for KSSU, the college television station, earned an award from the National Broadcasting Society.
After graduating with honors from SMSU in 2005, I returned home to South Dakota and starting working behind the scenes at KELO as a production assistant. I received the opportunity of a lifetime in December of that year to start working as a reporter and have been covering news in the region since.
In August 2011, I returned to KELOLAND This Morning as a co-anchor and enjoy bringing the overnight happenings and news of the day to our viewers.
In my time away from work, you’ll find me announcing races at Huset’s Speedway, fishing, bowling, throwing darts and tinkering with my radio controlled race cars.
