I'm Brand Manager here at Kickin' Country. Now, you might ask yourself, what does that mean. Well, here's what I do. I wake up, and I make sure this radio station is still Kickin'. I go to work and spend all day keepin' it Kickin'. Then, on my way home I listen and check again before I go to bed, you guessed it, just to make sure it's still Kickin'. Kickin' Country is not just a radio station. Kickin' Country is South Dakota, Southwest Minnesota, Northwest Iowa and Northeast Nebraska

I might have been born in New York, but I've been a Sioux Falls kid my entire life. Following my run in the Sioux Falls public school system, I attended the University of South Dakota and obtained a degree in Contemporary Media and Journalism. When I'm not on KIKN or ESPN 99.1, you can usually find me at a sporting event in the area, on the bike trails, or out enjoying some golf. I appreciate you listening!
I love being back on KIKN! Radio is something that I've always loved, starting when I was a 16 year old kid from Houghton, South Dakota. I graduated from Hecla High School and then from Northern State University in Aberdeen. I went to broadcasting school at Brown Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota and did radio time in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Nebraska. Other than radio, I was lucky enough to work in the Tea Area School District as a Paraprofessional with some of the best teachers and students! I'm married to a wonderful man, Steve, who is the Operations Manager for the Turner County Dairy
