I'm a St. Cloud State University graduate. While at SCSU, I spent many hours working at the campus radio station - KVSC. I mainly worked in the programming department and newsroom. Being a reporter has always been a dream of mine. I started my professional career at WJON in the fall of 2015 as a news reporter/anchor. I absolutely love my job and never knowing what each day will bring. I mostly cover higher education, business and the towns of Clearwater and Cold Spring. I love baking, fashion, dancing and singing loudly in my car. Story ideas? email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
