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've now been on KIKN for almost 3 years. I appreciate you listening!
I like fluids particularly Kombucha tea and Coffee. I like the number 44, thick cut bacon, Cool Ranch Doritos and Q-tips. I love my daughter, my bulldog, fortune cookie wisdom, good stories, and boxing. If I could organize an elite game of Pictionary players the people I would choose to sit at my table would be: Richard Pryor, Carl Jung, Mr. Rogers, Bruce Lee, Rumi, Alfred Hitchcock, Jesus and Johnny Cash. I’ve been finding my way in and out of radio station buildings since I was a kid
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

Hey Kickin’ Fans! I’m excited to return to South Dakota after living in Los Angeles for the past seven years. Right after college, I moved to LA for an internship at Entertainment Tonight/The Insider, where I later worked as a personal assistant in their wardrobe department. After discovering that wardrobe wasn’t my forte, I quickly decided I wanted to pursue acting and TV hosting, a lifelong dream of mine. Altogether I’ve worked on over 200 TV shows/movies or commercials as either an actress, double, stand-in, background actor or cheerleader/dancer
