Proudly born and raised in Central Minnesota. (Go LPGE Thunder!) After high school, I went to Brown College for Radio Broadcasting, and worked in the Twin Cities for a year before realizing home is where the heart is. When I'm not behind a microphone, you can usually find me on the golf course, in the kitchen trying out a new recipe, or walking my dog Norman, who was adopted from the Tri-County Humane Society. I host bar trivia on weeknights and spend most weekends hanging out at the lake. Follow along on Instagram and Twitter @AbbeyOnAir!
