I'm originally from rural Itasca County, but have called St. Cloud my home for the past ten years. I've worn quite a few journalism hats during that time - reporter, news anchor, editor, producer, social media manager and videographer. I cover central Minnesota business topics, along with news from Cold Spring, Foley and St. Joseph. I'm a storyteller by nature, and I'm passionate about keeping my fellow central Minnesotans informed on topics and issues that affect their lives. I love running, camping in State Parks, seeing live music and spending time with my family at our Lake Superior cabin.
