I’m not exactly a St. Cloud native, but I might as well be. After growing up in Coon Rapids, 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 a BA in Creative Writing and Film Production. I also studied and completed a minor in Spanish. I've been a part of the WJON news team since Oct. 2018 and cover community and weekend events. When I'm not working I enjoy reading, writing, listening to and making music, watching movies, and spending time with my family and our dogs.
