I’m not exactly a St. Cloud native, but I might as well be. After growing up in Coon Rapids, MN, my family moved to St. Augusta where I attended South Jr. High and Tech High School. In 2016 I graduated from Augsburg College in Minneapolis with one degree in creative writing and another in film production. I also studied and minored in Spanish. I've been a part of the WJON news team since Oct. 2018 and my main beats are St. Cloud Area School District 742, non-profits, community and weekend events, and the city of Rockville. When I'm not working I enjoy reading, writing, listening to and making music, watching movies, and spending time with my family and our two dogs.
